Why Learn With INKPULP?

There is no better teacher than a practicing professional who has also had a career as a college art professor. Shawn Crystal created INKPULP INSTRUCTION after a decade of teaching at SCAD and working as a professional comic book artist. He wanted to create a tool to help artists develop their own skills and career while also helping them to avoid the pitfalls of “breaking in” to the comic book industry. Shawn himself stumbled around for years trying to break in, and in the process he was able to learn all the ins and outs of the business and medium.

Now, all this invaluable experience and expertise is available to you. Along with other professionals, Shawn will walk you through your journey of artistic development and fast-track your jump from amateur artist to professional.

Learn At Your Own Pace

INKPULP INSTRUCTION is designed to be taken at your own pace, on your own time. There are no deadlines or expectations as to when projects and/or lessons need to be completed. Once you purchase a video, it is yours forever to watch and practice at your own leisure. 

Watch From Anywhere

INKPULP INSTRUCTION is a fully-online learning system. InkpulpInstruction.com is the home page and the entire library of videos is housed on Gumroad, meaning you can access them anytime, anywhere on your computer, phone, or tablet.

What Students Are Saying

“I just finished watching this and my goodness, these five hours were CRUCIAL for me. This is what I’ve been looking for for so long. I just watched the best of the best solve problems in real time and then explain those solutions.

It’s also changed the way I look at Shawn’s art now. I’m looking at one of his books and it’s like I know how he drew every line. I can see the steps he took and the choices he had to make on every page. For the first time it actually seems achievable for me.

I learned so many things about the process that I’ve never been able to derive from the many books I’ve read or tutorials watched or classes I’ve taken.

Thank you guys so much and I can’t wait to dive into your other content!”

Rocky F.

"I love watching people work, but what made this extra special was having you, another professional and teacher, asking a lot of the right questions along the way making this one of the more informative process videos out there without the fluff, time lapse, or post-video commentary. I appreciate the work that went into this!"

Chris S.

"This whole session was a trip! Thank you for letting us see and learn from what's going on behind the table of Jim Mahfood! I'm really a fan of him and he's my main inspiration for my art style. This episode really helped me more in learning from him. Kudos to Shawn Crystal and the Inkpulp team for shooting and editing this as well!" 

Miko F.

"I love how you dive into the artist's hobbies and what makes them tick, so cool! That and the filming/cinematography is dope :)"

Jeremy D.

"Wonderful tutorial. I'm a spanish Tommy's follower since looonnngggg time and I always wanted to see how he works and thinks while he draws. I love your approach, recording and asking him about several matters during all the time he inks, from the begining until the end. A pleasure to watch these videos."

Miguel G.

"Perspective grids were always confusing to me. I'm definitely going to watch this section multiple times. But, it doesn't feel out of reach trying it this way. I've seen other artists have like four pages taped together with lines everywhere. This way gives me hope."

Danny B.
