Digital Painting Techniques with Bobby Chiu

Digital Painting Class
Course Description: Prepare to look at digital art in a whole new light by learning from award-winning digital artist Bobby Chiu! Over nine lessons, Bobby will teach you his philosophies and techniques for producing digital paintings and conceptual art by applying traditional art skills in the virtual environment of Adobe Photoshop. Be prepared to immerse yourself in practical assignments that will build your digital painting skills from the ground up. (Previous familiarity with Adobe Photoshop would be helpful but not necessary.)

Lessons: 9 lessons in 9weeks
Fees: $798 USD / SelfTaught: $558 USD
Pre-Requisites: None.


Please leave any comments or questions you have about this course and I will be happy to answer them.


How long will I be able to view the videos?
You are able to view the videos for the 9 weeks of the course, plus an additional 4 weeks. In total you will be able to view the videos for 13 weeks.

The course is offered in 2 different versions. One is the regular course and one is Self-Taught. What is the difference?
With SELF TAUGHT classes you get all access to the class videos as well as the critique videos but no personal critiques for your own work. You can start Self-Taught classes at any time. Self-Taught classes are cheaper then the regular class. To register for the SELF-TAUGHT classes visit

Hey Bobby,

Great to see this blog up. It'll definitely be in my favourites:)

To anyone else out there, I've just finished Bobby's class and it was fan-bloody-tastic! I reckon I'm producing work twice as fast and of better quality. Get into it, you won't regret it.

Taking Digital Painting Techniques with Bobby Chiu was probably one of the best steps I could ever take in my illustration career. In the space of only 9 weeks, the quality of my painting reached a level I could not imagine achieving in 5 years. Upon finishing my final assignment for the class, I sat back and said to myself ‘Wow. I actually might just make it in this insanely competitive field!’

I don’t need to tell you about Bobby’s master of his craft. I will say that his command over his art is matched by both his enthusiasm as a teacher and his belief and dedication in each and every student he has. Because we can see each other’s critiques, I know he’s very supportive of all students regardless of skill level, background, accomplishments, etc. We as his students only became more determined to be great artists. Yes, we had to learn, and learning is a road of growing pains, frustration and setbacks. Yet, Bobby also will remind us that we do have what it takes to overcome these obstacles, and achieve what all of us dream of: the opportunity to see our talent and our passion spring to full life. Never once have we felt that we’re not going to make it. Instead we’ve been imbued by a bit of Bobby’s endless excitement and drive to create, to learn, to improve and ultimately, to touch others with our gifts.

So to sum up everything, take his class damn it! Thank me later!!
