About Nelson

A master of both traditional & 2D digital medias...I am available to teach drawing, painting , Adobe Illustrator & Photoshop. However, I must stress that my method of Photoshop use is geared mostly towards painting as a medium as opposed to photo retouching. Although I do dabble in some of the latter.

I have 7 years experience as an art teaching assistant & over 10 years of private one on one sessions. The latter which mostly consists of Adobe Illustrator & Photoshop. However, I am hoping to expand in the area where I shine & inspire most...which happens to be drawing & painting.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Drawing

I attended NYC's School of Visual Arts. I am qualified due to my knowledge of the human anatomy, my understanding of values (light, shade, halftones), portraiture, technique, etc.

My personal work is mostly inspired by pin-up, fantasy illustration & caricature...all which require the principles of the above I've just mentioned.

I am very much inspired by the Old Master's...with William-Adolphe Bouguereau being my all time favorite. And after a long absence from oils & acrylics due to my shift to digital painting, I now plan to return to oils in an attempt to fulfill a personal goal to be as good as him.

Painting

My original goal when I first attended NYC's School of Visual Arts was to become the next Boris Vallejo. Unfortunately, a major change in the commercial industry had forced me to make the switch to digital media. Since then I've successfully become the master I've always aspired to be with the only difference being that I'm now a double threat.

My goal is to instill the fundamental principals & traditional techniques to my students and how their knowledge can then be utilized should they make the switch to technology. Many tend to assume that it's all about the computer when in fact, it is the operator behind it. The computer is just another medium as a means to create.

Students will also be taught "How to see." An important must when learning how to draw.
