Introduction and Project Overview
(fast strumming music) Hello everyone. My name is Jeannot Landry. I'm a freelancer and 3D generalist as well as a conceptual artist. As a freelancer you get all types of clients. Some know what they want and uncertain of what they want. Either way, it is our job to come up with what they're looking for. The best way to do this without wasting time is to go with the process of elimination using quickly generated thumbnails that represent either a variety of elements or one element in a variety of forms. This is also a good way to come up with ideas when none are coming to mind. In this course, we're going to apply this process to a very broad theme. We're going to come up with fantasy characters. Some of the key takeaways from watching this course includes learning how to come up with ideas and block out figures with simple yet effective poses that have personalities. We're going to create females and male characters as well as creatures. Now we're going to learn how to keep the details of those sketches loose and suggestive and then finally we're going to present the final thumbnails. By the end of this training you will have learned how to quickly generate your own ideas for either yourself or to present to your clients as a quick elimination process to quickly find what is needed. I'm really excited to work with you digital doodlers and share these techniques with you. So let's get started with the first lesson.
