Digital painting demo & my Concept art class at PCAD

Hello everyone,

You may have heard that I'm currently teaching a college class at the Pennsylvania College of Art and Design. 

The school is pretty fantastic, and best of all it's run by working artists. I'm really thrilled to be there.

Tomorrow is my second class and I'll be doing a live demo on digital painting, and thought I'd share part of the demo here. I'm going to use the following piece as an example.

The class is part of the Illustration curriculum, and the students have already impressed me with their ability and creativity. I'm really looking forward to seeing what happens with this group of artists!


PS - Some of you following this blog may have already seen this piece. Sorry for the partial repeat.

Love the color variation in the face and skin tone when the patches come into play. Exactly what I would expect for a monster using "leftover" parts.

Pretty damn cool sir! Or "professor" I mean. :)
