Start date July-18-2023. Classes will take place on zoom live 9am session and 4pm session PST Tuesday's (you can pick which time you would like to join). Feedback sessions will last about 1.5 hours. We will communicate and send HW through designated discord server. The first class on July 18th will be an introduction class, no HW review. Week 1 will start the following week.
HOW IT WORKS: You will watch the recorded lessons and do the assignments prior to each class. First 30 min of class will be general Q&A (students in both the feedback and non feedback versions can ask questions). The rest of the time will be dedicated to the feedback section. Everyone is welcome to participate during this time.
This is an advanced class, a good understanding of painting in photoshop and fundamentals is recommended before taking this class. (You can watch my "intro to photoshop and values" class if you want to brush up on the basics.) In this class we will go over what it's like to work as a visdev artist, lessons reflect the tasks you will be asked to do if you are working on a movie. Perfect class for building a portfolio and getting ready for your first job in the animation industry.
Each week there will be a lesson, demo, and I will give homework that allows you to practice topics and build on what we have learned. You can watch others HW feedback.
