Concept Art Class
for production designers, art directors and aspiring concept artists
This concept art class is designed to help you visualize your ideas. It covers the basics of design, rendering techniques and everything you need to know to transform your ideas into images. The main focus lies upon speed and efficiency. This class does not make you the most creative artist, it makes you the fastest one.
The concept art class is divided into ten very extensive sessions. Each session covers a variety of design theory topics, rendering exercises, analysation tasks and encompasses half of a work day. After each session there is a one day break for practising and homework. For each milestone there are little achievments, depending on effort I will teach you about my favourite brushes and how to use them.
