What are your strengths and advantages as a speaker?
For students new to drawing, line quality and objective observation will be the most challenging part. The shape will not come out accurately even if you look and follow along. In this class, I will guide you in acquiring a better sense of drawing through planar and stereoscopic measurements. I will also present the mastery of perspective accurately and efficiently use my knowledge accumulated over the years.
It doesn't take long for me to process a drawing from start to finish. Knowing the basic concepts of contrast, boundary, and coloring and having a rough idea of the background illustration will speed up your work process. In this course, I'll provide you with various tips from my work routine along with multiple resources, brushes, sketch samples, and PSD file guides for coloring.
Creating high-quality concept art within a short period of time is one of my strengths. It's crucial to develop a clear concept and complete the illustration within a limited time frame if you want to work in the field. You'll learn how to work efficiently by referencing my work process.
What tips can learners get from your lecture?
Interest and confidence in accurate perspective and drawing. By understanding how the perspective technique is created through the human sight and camera lens, you will discover an accurate sense of perspective, not just superficially. Moreover, you can create fascinating results through various themes and imagination. Your confidence will naturally grow once you develop a solid sense of form through the basics.
Your capacity to observe and evaluate the painting will grow exponentially once you go through the composition/value/perspective/color lectures sequentially and practice them repeatedly. You'll have a positive experience with drawingas accurate understading of theory and purpose will lead to definiate results.
I'm not going to teach you just to imitate. I'll guide you through the basics of contrast, coloring, and other fundamentals for background concept art, as well as detailed points for creating artwork with light. You'll learn the basics and then progress through the steps to develop actual results.
Who would you recommend this class to?
This class is appropriate for beginners who have just started to draw or intermediate students who want to improve their illustration skills. I also recommend this class to those who struggle to draw in a three-dimensional way, those have difficulty in drawing without an example, those who have been drawing for a long time but feel stuck in their skills, those who lack basic skills, and those who want to learn digital tools and drawing at the same time quickly.
I recommend this class to those who use their drawings to communicate on social media such as Instagram and Twitter, those who want to express light and color attractively, and those who find it difficult to examine their drawings from a broad angle. I'm confident that you'll find the act of drawing much more manageable and more delightful after this class.
I recommend this class to those who want to learn the basics of background concept art from basic principles as well as those who want to work for companies related to games, movies, and animation. Those preparing portfolios will also be able to upgrade their drawing skills.
This course uses Wacom Intuos and Adobe Photoshop CC.
