New art+reminder by Artsammich
New art+reminder
For those who don't follow me on Instagram, this is to let you know there's a discount for a limited time on the subscription version of my classes (and the other classes) at Schoolism. If you're wanting to learn the fundamentals of light and lighting, or to learn some more advanced concepts of how to use light and surface to tell stories or support character, this is a great chance to see how I think my way through those problems! There are some great classes by other amazing instructors also that you can access through this same subscription.

This piece is something I haven't posted here yet, I'll replace this image with the full-size once the sale is over.

So you can see the end of the process I uploaded.

Monster process
A process example I created for my upcoming workshop at IDEA Academy. I'll be teaching how to use painting to enhance and streamline the character design process. This process is a quick and satisfying one I learned from the masters at Avalanche. You can get a character painting done in 4-8 hours using this process.

Full Disclosure: I have never seen the show, so there may be a few inaccuracies.

Death Butterfly by Artsammich
Death Butterfly
I sketched this guy a while ago, intending to make fun of the trend of designing a costume and calling it character design. But once the Death Butterfly was born, finishing the painting became a moral imperative. I tried to get more character into the face as I went so it doesn't exactly match the original intention of the piece. The original post it comes from here.

I'll be teaching a 3-day workshop at the IDEA Academy in Rome this summer. The workshop is going to be on how painting can be used to facilitate the character design process, both as an exploratory tool as well as a finishing tool. It's going to be a lot more hands-on training than the workshops I usually do, so if you live close enough to come you should take a look!
