Introduction and Project Overview
Hi everyone, my name is Lawrence Mann, and I'm a freelance illustrator and concept artist. Over the past 15 years or so, I've created all manner of fantasy and sci-fi artwork for clients large and small. In this course, we're going to paint Death from Above, the mythical, dynamic dragon. During this course, we'll explore how to create a sense of speed through composition, paint focal points with details fit for a master monster artist. Develop a dramatic scene with distance using simple lighting techniques and use multiple solutions to create a dragon that will fly even faster through the air. By the end of this training, you will have learned how to create the ultimate flying fantasy beast for your portfolio, and so I'm excited to work with Digital-Tutors and share these techniques with you. So let's get started with that first lesson.
