CDW Masterclass with James Paick and Kevin Chen!

During the holidays I was fortunate enough to be hard at work learning from the masterclass with brilliant artist James Paick and Kevin Chen. It was an amazing experience learning about environments and various unlearned skilled of photoshop from James and intensive study of figure drawing from Kevin Chen! Here are just the few things I did during the classes but I have many more notes from the class.

prehestoric-painting

A prehistorical image which is still in working progress, unfinished due to working on picture book concepts

ancient-chinese-ruins

First ever picture using photo-manipulation with the brief being an old city in the desert. The photo isn’t highest quality due to low res references.

Glass orb house

Just a design that I’ve done for a potential building in my new book! Hopefully will vlog the story board of my new book when I’m done! Mediums are watercolour artist quality Winsor and Newton and prisma pencils. 

Today was an exciting day doing a digital painting workshop at Adelaide CDW, sketches of what little drawings I’ve done during the workshop will be posted later this week. They are just scribble sketches while the instructor was talking and drawing with us~ 

Here it is in my strathmore watercolour sketchbook! Its just watercoloured and started pencil outlining. Just trying out different colours with the pencils. Will do a plain watercolour painting soon!

  

Here is the artwork finalised with prisma colour pencil detail with background as watercolour
