Pop-Up Christmas Card by markcrilley
Pop-Up Christmas Card
This is the result of my latest YouTube video, in which I showed how to create a pop-up Christmas card using paper, markers, colored pencils, and a bit of thread. As always I uploaded two different versions-- a super-short time-lapse version and a full-length narrated step-by-step:



Thanks so much for watching, and I hope the holidays are wonderful for all of you!

Hey there, everybody!

Glad you found my DeviantArt gallery. Some of you may know me from my YouTube videos. Here's a link to my channel, where you can find hundreds of instructional vids on almost any art-related topic you can imagine:…

Please check out my newest art book, THE REALISM CHALLENGE. It shows how to create photo-realistic illustrations, step by step-- artwork so real-looking it becomes difficult to distinguish them from actual objects:

I've got two how-to-draw books out now, MASTERING MANGA and MASTERING MANGA 2. Here's a direct link to where you'll find them on Amazon:…

My latest graphic novel project is a 6-book series for Dark Horse Comics called BRODY'S GHOST. Book 5 comes out April 15, 2014. Here's a direct link to where you'll find them on Amazon:…

Thanks again for visiting my gallery. I really hope you 
enjoy the artwork and step-by-step tutorials you find here. ^_^

All my best,

  • Mood: Joy

Hi Mark, I was curious to know your thoughts on colleges and art schools and if you think that they are a good idea or if you would advise avoiding them. Would you recommend mentoring programs instead or do you think it would be a better idea to go self taught? Also, Thank you very much for posting your video tutorials, I find them very helpful and easy to understand. :)
