"Taking classes from a person as skilled as Joel was quite the experience. Definitely changed my perspective on the way I see color - from the monitor to print. He’s been doing this a long time so go ahead ask him a question, a stupid one even, or his personal criticism. I’m sure he’s ready to share his honest opinion."

"To everyone planning to take his workshop:

Just when you thought you knew a lot about Photoshop, think again.

Because in Sir Joel’s workshop, you will learn everything you didn’t know, plus techniques that will make your art look reeaally good. He’ll teach you everything you’ll ever need, in the quickest and most efficient way.

And you WILL improve. A LOT. You’ll have fun while learning too! hehe.

I give it a three thumbs up! (if i had an extra one..haha)

Thanks Sir Joel!"

"I enjoyed Joel Chua’s workshop. The one-on-one and pair methods really means you get a lot of attention from him and he can comment about details like your strokes and other nuances. Really really helpful!"

Digital Coloring PRO

Your skeleton key into a world of
dynamic color results at blazing speeds!! A workshop you won't find anywhere else in the Philippines!!

Your command over specific software skills and your quality of artistic thinking are very valuable in producing high-quality artwork at high-speeds. You’ll get them both in this intense workshop. But be ready for some heat, because we won’t sugarcoat on your learning.

The PRO workshop condenses the BASICS and cuts very quickly into very rigorous territory. Not only will you learn typical Photoshop skills, you will learn specific techniques in painting, lighting, composition, and design that you can use in the creation of comics, concept art, game art, animation backgrounds, and even advertising art.

Recommended for those who have the passion to both express and impress through digital art and who also take their own education seriously.

7 sessions, 3 hours per session.
