In-Depth Concept Art

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 concepting 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!

3D Simulations
in Cinema 4D

What we love doing here at Yeti is exploring new visual languages. Our favorite way of working is expressing our ideas via dynamic simulations. Cloth, fluids, smoke, everything can be art directed and work as a tool for design. We will set up projects so that they are animation-ready.We will dissect plugins like X-Particles, Turbulence FD and Realflow without ever leaving Cinema4D, along of course with the powerful native tools of our favorite software.Last but not least, we will discuss the importance of art directing your shots in such a way so that they are presentable to clients, along with a brief overview of Octane renderer's features that are applicable in simulations.
