I've been busy teaching character illustration classes at the First Academy of Computer Arts for the past few weeks. Our culminating activities include the creation of an original character from rough ideation sketches all the way to full renders and a mock up movie poster featuring the said character. I believe in teaching by example so I designed this guy named Fred Lancer and I used him to prepare online demo packages for my students.
I'm actually thinking of creating publicly available (very) affordable content dedicated to the study of digital art. Think that'd be cool? Let me know! :-)
