Throughout these lessons we go through the very exciting process of creating environment illustrations. We will begin by blocking in each of the major shapes in their own layers, and then refine them to become the foundation of our image. We'll then block in colors and textures into the background, middle ground, and foreground layers. We'll complete the process of illustration by establishing a focal point and rendering our painting to an appropriate finish. By the end of this training, you'll understand the importance of staying focused on the procedures and steps used to create a quick and effective environment illustration. Software required: Photoshop CS4.
