If you guys aren't following Stephen and his work and the things he gives out to the art community you're really missing out on a genuinely amazing soul who cares deeply about our industry and the young talent within.

If you're at ALL interested in character development I recommend you buy his book The Silver Way, it's a treasure trove of excellent techniques and tips on how to exaggerate and design for character development.

Please if you do nothing else today, please read this poem he released, it's FULL of the feelings we all feel when producing art and facing this industry. You won't be sorry. 😊

The Environment Foundations is designed to simplify the mammoth task of understanding environment design.

We start simple focusing on composition theory and object placement.

From there we complicate our process into heavy design work and follow it up by jumping into rendering complete, dynamic paintings to delight your audiences.

21/05/2020

In Term 3, we go to work breaking down the hyper complexity of the human form.

With posing and drawing from imagination as our foundation, we take a completely modern approach to learning how to draw characters. We simplify everything first and then cover more and more complexity as the heat is turned up every week.

By the time you're finished you will have drawn hundreds of figures and anatomy studies.

This early skill acquisition is critical for us to move into the details and appeal of everything that is character design. You will be challenged like never before, but what you take away will be priceless and last a life-time.

In Term 2, we begin the process of learning the Fundamentals of solid draftsmanship. This is the very backbone to our line and design confidence.

After we master the rules of drawing forms in space early on, we go to work applying them as an entertainment designer would with loose briefs and the best ideation practices.

Term 2 will have a tremendous impact on your drawing ability, giving you the power to create and rotate forms like a true professional.
