2D Concept Art Workshop by NateHallinanArt

Course Overview

When it comes down to it, creating a realistic creature is more than painting a pretty picture. As concept artists, it's our job to provide creative options and beautiful solutions for production projects. That's why we're really excited to bring the legendary Nate Hallinan here to CGWorkshops. My life-like images have often prompt the question, "Is that really 2D?". The answer is yes! I'm here to show you how I do it, and how you can do it too.

In this course I’ll provide you with painting techniques that help achieve an imaginary yet realistic look. We'll also explore methods for developing the concept aspect of concept art; such as characteristic behaviors and relatability to enhance the believability.

Every week, I will release a new set of videos and assignments to help you build your concept and character development skills. You'll start by selecting a broader scenario for creature to exist within, and from there Iwill help you refine your ideas and make strong design choices.  I'll give feedback via paintovers, our class forums and regular live web feedback sessions (always recorded for those who can't make it.)

Over the weeks, I will help you reference, develop and paint your character, until you have your final result - a showpiece for your folio. Don't miss this painting workshop with a real difference. Feel free to ask me ay questions about it.

Man, Order of X is one of the greatest things I've ever seen! I really like the way you adapted their stories to the Middle Ages. You're definitely one of my favorites.
