In this series, we go through and concept the character Natalia, the Russian rebel and take each step through an in-depth look at it?s creation. Through this course, Tim Von Rueden will give you a complete run-through on how to create and concept a character out in Photoshop CS5 using a Wacom Intuos4 tablet.
In the duration of this course you will be taken through the entirety of a character creation process.This includes all the pre-production work that often goes overlooked such as gathering references, setting your layout, and a look at picking out your colors to compliment each other and lighting your scene. When it comes to drawing this series covers the human aspects such as the silhouette process, refining the anatomy, rendering skin using the pre-packed brushes, shaping out the head from any angle, taking an in-depth look and focus on the facial features from the eyes, the nose, the mouth, and the hair. Then we go through the materials included with a leather jacket, jeans, boots, metal, jewelry, tattoos, gloves. Then to polish it off I add a rim light and bring it all together with a background. I hope you enjoy and learn how to use this to create your own character concept art!
