This foundational digital painting course focuses on value, color & lighting. The students will learn how to observe & capture accurate color relationships, how to breakdown & understand various lighting set up, warm and cool schemes, and how to push color without breaking believability. This is a great class for both character and environment artists, who wish to gain a better understanding of color and lighting. (This class is taught with digital medium and is supplemented with some traditional gouache painting exercises.)
