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.

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.
