Who Chooses a Mentorship?

Many different artists enroll to Mentorship. Which one are you?

The Professional: "I want to improve my skills so I can take on more creative work at my job, change my position or level up!"

The Hobbyist: "I love drawing fan art and I might want to sell it as well. Maybe I have a story I want to illustrate and share through a comic book or a pitch book for an animated film or tv show!"

High School Artist: "I want to create a portfolio to gain acceptance into one of the major art schools in the world and I know I need more skills to do so."

The College Artist: "I am attending college or have graduated and I need to create a portfolio that will get me a job in the entertainment industry.  Currently I can see my art work needs to improve to obtain my dream job!"

There are many options online for learning to draw and improving your style, and there are varied teaching methods. All those methods are valid, but it’s important that you find the specific style of art education that works for you. Drawing FORCE is a unique method that teaches you to draw with critical thinking,  intuition, expression, and the creator of Drawing FORCE is here to help you craft your art and help you reach your goals.

The Three Most Common Reasons to Enroll in Online Mentorship

1. The Cost

If you are looking for a career in the art industry, but you can’t afford art school  you have probably found yourself turning to online drawing tutorials.  You can learn a lot from the resources included with each level of Drawing FORCE Membership. With four different mentorship package options, you can choose what works best with your budget for personal instruction. Mike Mattesi designs a program specifically for your skill level and your personal goals while providing you with the personal attention you need to make real progress.
An online mentorship is not just a chance to receive focused art critique, it can also be an opportunity to use Mike Mattesi’s industry knowledge and experience to make good choices moving forward in your art education. Once you have learned your drawing skills, Mike can connect you with the best instructors for you based on your goals and next steps in your artist journey.

2. The Schedule

Don't have the time to be a full time student? Perhaps you currently have a full time job. Mentorship gives you the flexibility to find a schedule that works for you, be it daily, weekly or every two weeks.  Do you want to apply to an internship that will launch your artistic career? Is there an upcoming comic book or artist convention you need to prepare for?  Are you creating your portfolio to get in a top art school? You need to create or curate a portfolio of work and Mike Mattesi can help you be ready. The Drawing FORCE online mentorship program is great for motivated, goal-oriented artists who want to make fast progress. Together, you and Mike can craft a program that will best prepare you for whatever situation you’re facing. The focus will be on building work, making meaningful improvements, and producing fast results, and no series of online tutorials can match the power of personalized art critiques and advice.

3. Motivation

Have you made goals before and found that you have trouble sticking to your plan to reach them? That probably describes most of us. If you are learning to draw or trying to hone your skills outside of the pressure and expectations of art school or work, it can be hard to stay committed. A Drawing FORCE art mentorship can add the element of responsibility and structure that your current program has been missing.Your mentor, Mike Mattesi, will give you homework assignments and track your progress. You will have the deadline of your next meeting to motivate you. Working toward a goal alone can be hard, but with an online mentorship, you can have personalized support to help you keep moving forward and achieve your dreams.
No matter what situation you’re in or what your goals may be, a one-on-one art mentorship is the fastest, most effective way to see results. Explore our session package options, learn more about what is included with the mentorship program, and join the Drawing FORCE community today!


What You’ll Learn

There are a lot of resources out there for learning how to draw better. Every method has its own advantages and disadvantages, and it’s important that you recognize which method truly works best for you. Do you feel like you are truly learning? Is this method helping you reach your goal, whether that’s a new career or a certain artistic style? Are you excited and engaged with the process?

What is FORCE Drawing?

When you create a drawing using the FORCE theory, the point is not to make a great drawing. It may sound counter intuitive, but FORCE drawing is actually about so much more than copying a figure onto a page. It’s about understanding and empathizing with your subject. What’s happening in the scene you want to draw? How is the model’s body functioning? Why is the model doing what they’re doing? FORCE drawing makes you a better artist, designer, and storyteller by teaching you to think more deeply about what you see. You will be able to recreate an experience. Your drawings will capture function and feeling simultaneously. The human body is a masterful machine of logic and mechanics combined with beauty and grace. With FORCE drawing theory, you can interpret it all into your work.

Who Uses FORCE Drawing?

The creator and original instructor of FORCE drawing, Mike Mattesi, has worked for Pixar, Disney, DreamWorks, Marvel Comics, Nickelodeon, Electronic Arts, and more, and his methods have spread throughout the art industry. Whether you want to become an illustrator, an animator, storyboard artist, comic book artist or a concept artist, FORCE drawing can help you hone your craft and achieve your dreams. Mike’s students have become character designers, storyboard artists, comic book pencilers and inkers, and even television producers, VPs, and art directors. They are spread throughout the entertainment industry, working in video games, comic books, and feature and television animation. Whatever your goals may be, FORCE drawing and private classes with Mike Mattesi and the FORCE Mentorship team, will help you reach them.

Is FORCE Drawing for You?

If you want to make real progress with your artistic skills, you need to find an art education method that works for you. FORCE drawing offers a whole new perspective and style that has helped people forge new careers. If you are tired of watching online drawing tutorials where the artist uses a tiny, fine-point pencil and spends hours taking measurements and rendering a character, try FORCE drawing. We’re tired of those tutorials too! Drawing should be intellectually and creatively challenging, exciting, and addicting. Choose a drawing approach that truly captures a model’s drama, function and humanity. Pick a method that helps you understand drawing better. Choose FORCE drawing!

How It Works

After you sign up for a Drawing FORCE art mentorship, we decide on the first meeting's time. The first meeting sets goals and expectations. Mike will assess your skill and ability as an artist to better understand where you are starting from and where there is room for improvement. You will also discuss your goals. Are you looking for a career in the entertainment industry as a concept artist, storyboard artist, comic book artist or character designer? Do you simply want to craft a new, more fine-tuned drawing style? Are you creating a portfolio to gain entry to one of the world's best art schools? If you don’t have a goal, that will be an important place to start. Defining what you want to get out of the mentorship will help you and Mike decide how to structure your program and it will give you a way to measure your progress and success. With that goal in mind, the two of you will structure a personalized program and make a plan on how to help get you where you want to be.

Each meeting is a live, online, one-on-one, 50 minute-long session with one of the FORCE drawing instructors. During your mentorship you can be taught by more than one of the instructors based on the subject you are learning. Scheduling is flexible and you can choose the mentorship package that works best with your budget, whether you are concerned about time or finances. You will receive focused attention on your work and every session is recorded so you can always refer back to what was discussed. You will receive assignments that you can fulfill digitally or with traditional drawing tools. Mike will personally critique your drawings with an eye for what you want to achieve in style and skill.  If you’re looking for a framework to help you practice your art with purpose, this online mentorship is a great option, and it is by far the fastest way to learn and improve.

Choose Your Session Pack

There are three package options for your Drawing FORCE art mentorship. You can buy one session, a three-month package of twelve sessions and lastly, thirty-six sessions! Each mentorship option includes the benefit of access to the Monthly Live Premium FORCE Event, 400 videos of FORCE drawing education, a diverse set of model photo packs, Demo video Bundles, and entry into the dedicated FORCE Forum community.

One Session

Explore the advantages of one-on-one classes with a single session.

It’s a great option if you need to budget your time or your money, or you just want to see if this is the right choice for your art education.

12 Sessions

If you are serious about improving your skills or finding a career in the art world, you owe it to yourself to make the commitment to a longer-term program. A 12-session package provides you with the equivalent of more than one free class.

"You are honestly the best out there, and I'm so glad I have you as a mentor. I wouldn't get the quality of education anywhere else, and the improvements I have made thanks to you in only 5 months of mentoring are insane. Whereas I believe most instructors just look at students work and read off a flowchart on what 99%-of-students-screw-up-most-of-the-time, and then just use that as way for students to improve, you actually truly look at what student is struggling in and you point out exactly what they need to do. There was a time when I wanted to draw, but I never progressed. With you as a mentor I actually managed to make progress, a lot of progress, something I thought would be impossible."

Current Student

"I hope you have been well, earlier today I received confirmation that I have been accepted on the Animation Trainee Program as a Storyboard Revisionist. I don't know what production or show I will be placed on but I'm excited. Thank you again for providing me with a recommendation letter and mentorship and all the content you and the team are putting out at the moment I'm really enjoying the new discoveries that I have learned through Force this year."

Mark J
Student that wanted career in entertainment industry

"You changed the way I think about drawing. I still remember the lesson where you told me to think about lines as ideas, that alone changed my entire relationship with art. It went from being a kind of academic and technical thinking to something much more."
