Description

This course explores an efficient, easy to work, and forgiving method for taking a drawing to a finished color painting. We will cover and implement a multitude of things that are common practice in the professional production art world - composition, tangents, value structure, color theory / temperatures, final touch-ups, and creating a stress-free painting set-up throughout. These methods and concepts have served me well in my career. And after you're done watching, I hope they'll give you what you need to get started on your illustrative journey! Software required: Photoshop CS3 and up.
