Introduction and Project Overview
Hi everyone. My name is Josh Kao, and I am a concept artist working in the video game industry for the past 7 years. Some of the projects I've worked on are Halo 4, God of War Sanction, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 2. In this course, we're going to learn how to design a mech in photoshop. Some of the things I will go over in this tutorial will be how to start a mech concept from the thumbnail stage all the way to the finished rendering stage. By the end of the video, you will be able to design your own mech. I am excited to work with Digital-Tutors and share these techniques and ideas with you, so let's get started with the first lesson.
