So, here we are. My blog dedicated to my adventures in the art world. This first post is dedicated to a recent course I took with concept art extraordinaire Phillip Straub. A great course that taught me quite a bit. Here's a look back at what I did in the course:
This week was an introduction to a few composition types (circular, iconic, and rule of thirds). A rough start indeed, but a real eye-opener as to what tools were available for future compositions.
More composition styles (cross, L, and triangle).
This week the compositions styles were completely up to us. However, the stories being told had to take place in environments that were reflective of gothic architecture.
This week dealt with creating organic environments. Interesting, and definitely more akin to what I'm usually more comfortable doing.
Our first week in color. A challenging week indeed. But definitely one that has me excited to learn the ways of using color effectively.
This week focused on depicting an environment where the use of atmospheric perspective was obvious.
Weeks 7 and 8
The last two weeks were dedicated to one piece. I feel like this one turned out fairly well, but I imagine I'll put some more work into it later on.
Overall, I don't think I could have asked for more out of this class. It definitely exceeded my expectations for online learning. And I can't wait to further my abilities in the ways of art. Thanks for viewing! Cheers!
