About the Project:

21 Draw University is a premium online learning platform with tutorials by top industry artists who have worked for companies like Disney, Marvel, Dreamworks, DC and more.

The biggest problem with most online learning tools today is that usually only one artist will cover one particular art subject. For example, one artist will cover anatomy, another will cover character design and so on. You are only given one opinion on that specific topic. 

If you've followed our hugely successful previous projects you'll know that we love to see how different artists approach the same subject, in order to give you more options to develop your own style and voice in that area.

Imagine a platform where you could compare how your favorite artists approach concepts like anatomy, perspective, character design, composition, cityscapes/landscapes and more. You would learn how to draw something in more than one way, making you a better artist in general, but also helping you grow and explore new ways of tackling challenging areas. Enter our new project, 21 Draw University! 

This is the ONLY online learning platform that allows you to learn from your favourite artists in this way!

21 Draw University offers you premium art based training for people of all ages and abilities to find the inspiration to pick up a pencil and draw! We're creating a beautiful new and exciting online university offering courses on the following subjects:

Drawing Fundamentals

Anatomy

Character Design

Creature Creation

Environment Design

Digital Drawing

Fundamentals of Comics

and more. 

Meet the artists!

Steve Rude: Winner of multiple Eisner Awards, and arguably one of the top comic book artists of all time, he needs no introduction.

Loopy Dave: A one of a kind illustrator hailing from Australia. An instantly recognizable style, matching wit and mastery of craft to create spectacular images. 

Charlie Bowater: An inspiring concept artist and illustrator. Having produced amazing work for our last 2 projects, she is back by popular demand :)

Warren Louw: One of the most celebrated artists from South Africa. Well recognized for his sublime renditions of beautiful women and a perfectionist in his digital illustrations, he is constantly in demand!

Gerardo Sandoval: A kick ass Mexican artist that currently draws for Marvel Comics and other big names. He worked on our previous 2 projects and we're delighted to have him back!

Randy Bishop: Randy is an highly talented artist with a massive global following. A passionate story teller and a sought after character designer and illustrator.

Genzoman: An exciting illustrator and fantasy painter whose impressive work makes anyone’s eyes cling to their screen. Well known for his work on World of Warcraft, his talents are a real asset to this project.

The CHAMBA: Jeffrey Cruz, known to many as the CHAMBA is one of the art community's most loved and recognizable artists. Over the years, his art has garnered worldwide attention and drawn the eye of major companies, including Marvel, Disney, DC, and Capcom, and his positive, welcoming personality has created a legion of fans around the globe.

We are a group of international artists with headquarters in Sweden and main operations in the US, UK and EU.

Our first crowdfunded project made over $150,000 on Indiegogo in May 2014. Our second project made $200,000 in October 2015 and had over 2,000 backers. 

Our backers asked us for a new project and actively worked with us to develop 21 Draw University. The idea came from you and the artistic community, so we hope you'll like it!

By using online interactive tutorials you will be able to delve really deeply this time, exploring everything from anatomy to world building, giving you incredibly detailed process tutorials from the world's greatest artists. You can compare and contrast how the artists approach common artistic concepts, helping you improve or recap your skills. 

Our experience from our last projects means we have a great logistics system in place, so we can get your courses to you as quickly as possible.

Risks and challenges

The biggest risk is making sure that we make the best online university and get it to you on time. We learned alot from our last projects and have gained alot of experience. We also have a great network of top industry artists that we've worked with before and who can get great work to us on time! We've also set up an awesome logistics and production system so we can get all phases of the university completed and get it to you as quickly as possible. We have a great website designer, production manager and customer service teams waiting to get started. Most importantly, we've also started the production phases and have detailed schedules in place that will allow us to get your courses to you on time. We are serious when we say that YOU will love your courses or YOU get your money back. Thanks!
