Description

In this tutorial, we will learn about the process of creating concept art for a transforming robot within a production pipeline. To get started, you should know that this course will focus on providing you with a high-level glimpse at my thought process in designing our robot. While we won't focus on painting every brush stroke, I will be walking you through each step, demonstrating techniques as well as providing insight into the process. First, we'll jump in and knock out some quick silhouette options to establish our robot's form and pose. After spending some time roughing in possible details for our silhouette, we will begin refining forms in grayscale. We will then learn about the coloring process for this project from base color all the way through finishing details. We'll wrap things up by learning about some final steps that are taken before handing our artwork to the next artist in the pipeline. After completing this course, you'll not only know how the concept art was painted, but you'll also understand the design decisions that were made leading up to our finished concept. Software required: Photoshop CS5.

Introduction and Project Overview
Hello and welcome to the Transforming Robot Production Pipeline Series, Volume One, Concept and Design, presented by Digital Tutors and Adobe Authorized Training Center. My name is Eddie. And I'll be walking you through my process of creating concept art which will be used as a reference for creating our transforming robot. To get started you should know that this course will focus on providing you with a high level glimpse at my thought process in designing a robot. While we won't focus on painting every brush stroke, I will be walking you through each step, demonstrating techniques as well as providing insight into the process. First we'll jump in and knock out some quick silhouette options to establish our robot's form and pose. After spending some time roughing in possible details of our silhouette, we'll begin refining forms in gray scale. We'll then learn about the coloring process for this project from based color all the way through finishing details. We'll wrap things up by learning about some final steps that were taken before handing our artwork to the next artist in the pipeline. After completing this course, you'll not only know how the concept art was painted, but you'll also understand the design decisions that were made leading up to our finished concept. Let's jump in and get started with our next lesson.
