Learn From Artists That Have Worked At the World’s Best Studios

Mitch Bowler

Founder, PencilKings

I was an aspiring artist with a passion. I wanted to become the best artist I could be, but I didn’t know where to start or where to go.

Art school was expensive. I didn’t want to spend the money, go into debt, and build my life around a school schedule.

I just wanted to focus on the specifics of what I wanted to learn, on my own time.

Finally by random chance I found someone that could help me what I wanted to do with my art (instead of just forcing their agenda on me) and gave me direction to the right resources that would take me to the next level.

You might be thinking, “YouTube! Maybe some video instruction will help,” but you’re going to run into the same problem because even though someone is talking at you, what you really need is someone who cares about your journey and can understand what you really need.

When I was stuck. I felt alone, frustrated, and desperately wanted help and direction, but once I knew which direction to go I was able to start making fast progress.

It’s no secret that the art education industry is filled with “noise.”

“Who can you trust?”
“Who’s providing the most helpful resources?”
“What’s the best value?”

Trying to become a great artist was challenge enough… and I found myself spending more time sifting through the “noise” than I was practicing my craft.

I kept searching for the fast track…

the shortcut to success…

the most powerful resources that focused on what I wanted to learn so I could become the artist I’d always wanted to be…

and I never found it. I kept struggling and pieced together my education. It cost a lot more than it needed to, and took far too long.

Luckily, it paid off.

After Years of Struggling Alone…

I Finally Established Myself as a Successful Artist, Working at AAA Games, Surrounded by Other Amazing Artists and Was LOVING It!

Years later I established myself as a successful artist and went on to work for AAA Games for 10 years, developed their outsourcing in Shanghai, China, and had the privilege of working on Call of Duty (the popular video game).  I finally became the artist I always wanted to be… and was getting paid for it!

I was surrounded by other artists and loved it. We would collaborate, help each other, and continued our learning journey as a team. I started to wonder,

“What would my professional art career be like if it didn’t take as long to get where I am today?”

Then it hit me.

I’d already done all the research, read the books, watched the videos, and now I was surrounded by other professional artists who were getting paid for their craft. What if I could take all of this knowledge… the knowledge of my professional artist friends, and create a fast-track to help artists create their best art!

I could build a community of professional and aspiring artists that would support each other. I would have professional artists create step-by-step videos so no one would feel stuck or lost like I did.

And, I’d break into course specific curriculum so artists could study exactly what they wanted, when they wanted, for the most affordable investment possible.

The lightbulb went off. Pencil Kings was born.

After “class” you may be working on a piece and get stuck…

It’s simple. Just post your question inside, and the community is there to help. You’ll draw inspiration from fellow artists work and accelerate your skill level faster.

Our community also offers:

3) Collegiate-Level Training For Every Skill Level

Whether you’re a talented artist looking to refine your craft, looking to get back into art, or starting from scratch, you’ll fit right in.

From the basics to advanced… digital and traditional art… our courses will accelerate your skills and help you become the artist you’ve always wanted to be.

When you get started, a quick survey will direct you to courses that meet your skill level and interest.

From there, you can follow our suggested step-by-step curriculum.

You will always have a crystal clear idea on what your next steps should be.

If that’s not your thing, you can always browse through our catalogue of courses and individual videos on your own.

4) Monthly Fundamental Challenges Make Learning Easy and Fun

Having access to all those courses is great, but there’s one problem commonly experienced by most artists, and that’s staying motivated.

For motivation, we’ve created easy monthly challenges to go along with the course lessons. This is the perfect way to continually improve as an artist, even if you have a hectic schedule.

Each month focuses on a different fundamental and prizes are awarded each month to active participants.

Consistent focus on fundamentals will advance your art dramatically and lead to dramatic improvement.

5) Dedicated “Artist Success Coaches” to Ensure You Succeed

Most online art education companies will just send you the instruction and push you on your way. The only thing they are really concerned about is making the initial sale, and not how you progress as an artist.

We operate in the exact opposite way, and are your partner in success every step of the way.

We have a dedicated “success” team that will make sure that you’re getting the help and assistance you need to become the best artist you can be.

Making Art Education Affordable for Nearly Every Artist

(Less than You Spend on Art Supplies)

My goal was to provide the most helpful and powerful trainings I possible could to Pencil Kings members…

But I also wanted them to be available to nearly everyone, at the most affordable, no-brainer cost possible.

People ask me why I am “giving away” membership so cheap. It’s because I’m passionate about what I do, because it works. That’s why more and more members keep joining Pencil Kings sending us rave reviews.

More members means a bigger, better community and more support for everyone. It also means I can keep rates as low as possible.

The expert artist instructors typically charge $50+ per hour… multiply that by 55+ courses… 480 individual videos (and growing monthly) and you get a pretty big number… well into the tens of thousands of dollars.

Say you did just 3 hours of coursework per week… that’d be $600 per month in private instruction. But that price would ridiculous and out of reach for most everyone.

And then there’s art school… the traditional route, right? You could spend $80,000+ for a degree. That’s ridiculously expensive. You may need to relocate and build your life around your school schedule. Plus, you might be learning from teachers assistant’s half the time.

So here’s what I did…

I wanted to keep pricing lower than most people would spend on art supplies each month.

I want you to be able to join Pencil Kings and be blown away at how talented of an artist you become.

You’ll be getting virtual private instruction for a fraction of the cost. A fraction so small you’ll laugh. Instead of charging hourly, or per class, I decided to include everything for a simple, low cost, flat-rate.

No hidden fees. No surprises. You get it all.

You’ll get instant unlimited access to all of our courses… all of our videos… our exclusive community, and powerful artist interviews for the price of 30 minutes of private instruction.

For just $29.95 per month you’ll be watching over the shoulder and learning stroke-by-stroke from successful, professional artists who make a living with their craft.

Take the courses of your choice, at your own speed, on your own time with the community of like-minded artists supporting you.

Joining Pencil Kings will give you the professional instruction, motivation, and support to bypass the struggles of trying to learn on your own.

You’ve got nothing to lose. I’m so confident that you’ll love Pencil Kings that I back it with a 100% money back guarantee. If, for whatever reason, you’re not satisfied with the level of instruction, just email me and I’ll refund your money – no questions asked.

If you’re hesitant or on the fence, give Pencil Kings a try. Imagine how you’ll feel after just one month of professional, step-by-step instruction.
