Journal Entry: Sun Mar 18, 2012, 10:25 PM
Is there anyone who knows of any good online art classes? Or something similar?

This is the kind of thing I want to learn:

www.youtube.com/watch?v=boxpz_…

I was actually thinking of doing University but I can't really spare the time these days, I just really want to expand! If anyone knows of anything that can help me learn this type of thing, that would help out so much, I don't know the first place to start so any help would be great.

Thanks in advance :D

Also, one of my closest friends has been doing some incredible work lately, check out his work:

Looks like most people have already said this but Feng Zhu's school of design. Feng has a youtube channel thats very informative and inspirational. Also a good book to study from for illustration is "Creative Illustration" by Andrew Loomis.

I would highly recommend watching the youtube videos of Feng Zhu, He is brilliant, owns his own digital art school, and gives out his teachings for free. There is a wide range of paintings that he does, however his specialty is concept art. He does give traditional tutorials teaching people how to replicate something. He gives the understandings behind what he does and why he does it.

Btw, don't lose your art style. Vector illustrations are much better than the traditional method. I trust raster isn't going to be around much longer. I only see raster being used on altering photos and videos.

If anything i would start learning 3d if I were you. The ability to incorporate 3d in your art is much better. The way the light works on objects. Its brilliant. then you could use 2d painting to paint over the 3d model.

Hey Pat! There is a YouTube subscriber who is very good and has a lot of how-to vids on YouTube using the exact style of digital art you are looking to learn. His YouTube ID is "idrawgirls". I've never attached a link (recently that I can remember), so sorry, in advance, if it does not work. The title of his most recent vid (I subscribe to him) is right up your alley, it is a Mass Effect digital tutorial entitled, "Mass Effect Digital tutorial Shepard vs Husk".
Good luck and have fun! :dance:

A lot of what those videos come down to is a technique that works for the artist, a good understanding of colour and light theory and lots of clever research, specially for the bug head/alien portraits. One book thats really helped me is 'Color and Light' by James Guerney. I think if anything you probably want to look more toward concept art than finished illustrations for new techniques or approach. :)
