All of David’s current tutoring subjects are listed at the left. You can read more about David’s qualifications in specific subjects below.

Adobe Flash

I'm a certified medical illustrator, who is experienced with Adobe Creative Suite and 3D animation. With Flash, I can introduce animation principles and how to use its interface for Actionscript.

Adobe Photoshop

I have professional experience with Adobe Creative Suite. I stay current with versions and can teach techniques for graphic design, illustration, animation, or photo retouching.

Drawing

I am a certified medical illustrator in the area. I hold a BFA in painting/drawing from East Carolina University. My main focus was life drawing and figure painting for a portfolio to be accepted in a medical illustration graduate program. I can offer basic drawing techniques (using pencil, chalk, or ink) and advanced anatomical/ figure drawing.

Maya

I am a certified medical illustrator in the area, who has focused on 3D animation. Since I have a specialized market, I have to stay a 3D generalist. My main program that I use is Softimage now, but I have also been a Maya user. Since I am used to changing platforms, I believe in teaching the fundamentals of 3D. This is very important for seeking employment in production firms, which may require you to pick up another program or even use in-house software. Some specific areas of 3D that I use in my business are modeling topics, animation (some character, but mainly dynamics), rendering, texturing, and then compositing (in AfterEffects).

Microsoft Windows

Familiarity with creating batch files/configuring config files with DOS prompt. I've been a Windows user since Windows 3.1. I currently work day to day in Windows 8, Windows 7, and Vista.

Painting

I have a BFA in painting from East Carolina University. I am familiar with tempra painting, watercolors (though I am not a watercolorist), acrylics, and oil painting. While I was getting a BFA, I knew I wanted to become a medical illustrator...so I focused on figure and life painting. I then got a MS in medical illustration (from Medical College of Georgia). I can teach drawing skills, painting techniques, and surface anatomy to any art student.

Photography

My profession is medical illustration with an emphasis on 3D animation. I have had an interest in photography all my life, and shoot amateur portraits (including family weddings), landscapes, and HDR lightmaps for my 3D animation. I took photography classes in college, and before that had learned basic exposure principles on my parent's Canon AE-1 manual SLR. I have darkroom experience, and know how to judge for good contrast. I also am always interested in judging dynamic range and when to bracket and be able to edit later. These days, my serious camera is a Canon 5D (with an assortment of EOS lenses), and I use Photoshop professional for my editing program (CS5)

Video Production

I am experienced with DV standards (be it NTSC, HD, or web). My main compositing program is Adobe AfterEffects. I can demonstrate encoding formats for blu-ray, HDTV, HTML5, as well as other standards.

Web Design

I am familiar with Photoshop, Illustrator, Flash (including AS3), Dreamweaver, and standards for Gecko, Webkit, and IE browsers. While using Dreamweaver, I generally stay within the scripting area to directly script HTML and CSS script. I have a web certificate from Emory University and can help with general layout or Javascript issues.

Approved Subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam.

If a tutor is interested but not yet certified in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.
