LAAFA: Design in Concept Painting

To be fair to. . .well, everyone, I'm not good enough to deserve teaching anything at this school.

That said, I'm going to do a 3-day workshop for the Los Angeles Academy of Figurative Art on digital painting and design in concept art.  This is my favorite subject of all, and I'm excited to get a chance to show attendees the real reason why I love painting.

Learning how to render form and light are essential foundation skills, but nobody becomes a great painter without a strong understanding or deep-seated sense of design in everything they do.  This is the most advanced class I know how to teach, and I'll be giving away every secret I know for using digital painting to transform a good concept into something really exciting.

I'll also be doing a demonstration for a few hours one of the evenings. This will be like a condensed and less-deep version of the 3-day workshop.

I hope some of you can make it!
