Something is wrong. I can’t download this ebook. My computer tells me it is over 1.7 billion GB and it tries downloading forever. I’ve downloaded all others up til now with no problem.
I finally got it to download after rebooting, but it won’t open. Adobe says the file is damaged and cannot be repaired.
It looks like everything is okay with the file. Are you still having an issue?
Yes, it does that every time I try to download.
I’ve tried some others and they are all doing that to me now. It must be a problem on my end, but I can’t figure out what.
Maybe try a different browser
Also unable to download this e book
The download link is working normally. Perhaps try a different browser or reload the page.
Thanks just had to be a little patient for it to download
Hi Matt, Everything is fairly clear to me with the exception of the Golden Mean and The Golden Points. I don’t see how you get from one to the other and would have no idea as to how to establish the Golden Points in a drawing. Can you suggest any links to better understand this concept? Thanks much!
Great, informative video. Really enjoyed this one.
Learning about these thumbnail sketches has changed my whole view and helped my composition dramatically! I wish I would have done this before. Composition is definitely a topic I need work on and this video helped dramatically.
I got the enoki downloaded but can’t seem to get the video to download. I haven’t had any problems with any of the previous videos. This is the only one I’ve seen that says the original is stored in archives. Could that be it?
You should download either the SD version or the HD version. The original files are sometimes much larger and some are stored securely.
Not sure what an enoki is!!!! I meant e book
This eBook will not download to my computer.
The file was very large. I have replaced it with a smaller file. You can give it another go.
Also cannot download ebook for composition
I don’t get what is the use of composition
thank you for this video and ebook. If I am correct, the thumbnail sketches are what is also referred to as gesture sketches or gesture studies – with composition being part of it – in that the forms and shapes are placed within what the proposed picture would be?
I’m afraid I am unable to open this video; I have tried several different browsers.
Our video hosting provider is currently reporting intermittent outages. I suspect this is the issue that you’re having. They are currently working on the issue and will have full service restored soon.
Thank you for loking into this – I can confirm the video is working today
This video took forever to start. Then it played for just over a minute and got stuck.
Have you tried changing the streaming settings? To do so, scroll over the video and click on the small icon of a gear. Choose a lesser quality and the video should play easier for you.
