What is this course about?

You will learn how to start with a basic idea or a concept to create a world of its own using simple tools and techniques. You will go through the whole process like concept artists in real studios do, and discover what it’s like to be a part of a project for an animated movie.

I’ll demonstrate the workflow of a concept artist. We will start with a line sketch and slowly work through the artwork by using techniques like Photobashing and 3D modeling to create a final piece.

This course is perfectly suitable for people who don’t know how to draw since I use basic techniques and simple examples. You will still be able to produce a great result, even with no prior knowledge!

About the author

Hi, my name is Sergey Grechanyuk!

I am a concept artist and Art Director with more than 6 years of experience. Since childhood, I have always enjoyed drawing and I have always been very fond of movies and computer games, and, perhaps, I have been most impressed by cinematic trailers for games. I eventually realized that I could be a part of the creation of such projects. I have worked on dozens of cinematics, music videos, and triple-A games.

The most inspiring thing for me as a concept artist is that I literally depict what the final product will look like. You can basically translate what you have imagined into a visual language transforming into images of the things that existed only in your head. There are no limits to this profession as every task is a new challenge, and each previous work seems imperfect to you because you’re constantly developing your taste and skills. Because of that, you strive to make your next artwork even better.
