Description

We'll begin this training by starting with a sketch of our forest creature, along with visualizing the environment that our concept exists in. From there, we'll spend several lessons using some different methods of blocking in textures to develop and evolve the look of our forest creature. As we apply our textures we'll be working in grayscale so that we can focus on maintaining our values first. Once our textures have been blocked in, we'll begin to refine our concept and learn how to apply color. We'll finish our concept by exploring how to place our forest creature into an environment that compliments his appearance. By utilizing the methods of applying textures in this course you'll be able to add more depth and personality to your own concepts. Software required: Photoshop CS6.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hello, and welcome to this series of lessons, focusing on enhancing your concepts with textures in Photoshop. My name is Kurt, and I'll be your instructor as we walk through a process of developing our concept of a forest creature using a variety of textures in Photoshop. We'll begin this course by starting with a sketch of our forest creature, along with visualizing the environment that our concept exists in. From there, we'll spend several lessons using some different methods of blocking and textures to develop and evolve the look of our forest creature. As we apply our textures, we'll be working in grayscale, so that we can focus on maintaining our values first. Once our textures have been blocked in, we'll begin to refine our concept and learn how to apply color. We'll finish our concept by exploring how to place our forest creature into an environment that complements his appearance. By utilizing the methods of applying textures in this course, you'll be able to add more depth and personality to your own concepts. So with that, we'll begin in our next lesson.
