Homework for this week

Take your work to the next level! Whether it be a nicely laid out page, a polished character, or high quality sketches, post stuff that you'd want to frame and mount in a concept art museum.

Homework Week 4

Awesome progress everyone, here's a quick list for whats expected by next week

Albert - Take your princess into color now. You can always touch up the sketches later, but I feel you are in a good place with your sketch.

Susie - Start working on that final caterpillar, and have fun with it! I think you have a good idea of where you want to take it. If you have time start researching a new character too.

Steven - Work on that alien, use reference and think about the lighting as you paint. Try exploring silhouettes and sketches as well to play with the aliens anatomy and not just its details

Solin - Nice progress on your second character, try finishing up the painting on your first and get as far as you can with your second, i think both of them have good exploration though.

Ryan - Finish up that knight, use reference and of course think about how armor is put together and layered, and also the lighting is important. Also if you have time, research your next character

Kevin - Start sketching for a character, explore thumbnails\sketches and come up with a final character as well (doesnt need to be fully rendered)

Bayson - Start gathering reference material for a character and try exploring thumbnails and sketches

Matt - Keep working on your values, maybe explore thumbnails and sketches for a specific character so we can go through the process of concepting to finalizing.

Some weapons using photoshop...slowly getting the hang of it but could use help.

So I have these two characters and I would love next class to go over how to start doing them in photoshop. It's been tough but I was able to do a prop.

Hey Jason, I'm out of town this week, so I won't be able to come to class, but here's all the variations I did for Lancelot.
I had a hard time trying to figure out the values while coming up with a design and I think it showed poorly on some. Whatever feedback you have will be appreciated!

Week 1 Character Demo

Here's the demo for this week, hopefully we can explore color next week!

As for what to post this week to the blog, please have up any current characters that you guys would like feedback/paintovers for, we might do this on the projector in class next week, think it would be more helpful to see the paintover process

Also, everyone should have new work to show for next week! Whether it be sketches for a new character or fixes to current ones is up to you and what we agreed upon when I touched base with some of you individually. Look forward to a more well rounded curriculum next time we meet.
