This morning, my friends at ImagineFX Magazine got me all choked up.
As many of you have now seen and read, ImagineFX interviewed me about The Oatley Academy for Issue #94 (March/April 2013).
The article is really encouraging. …and humbling.
The issue has already hit shelves in the UK and will be available in the US in early April.
You can read an additional article (which includes the majority of the interview and input from some of my Painting Drama students) at ImagineFX.com.
To accompany the article, I finished the first personal piece I’ve done in over a year. It’s an illustration inspired by George Orwell’s cautionary tale: Animal Farm.
But I also discovered another opportunity in the process…
I recorded nearly every minute of painting, every thumbnail sketch, every study, every color comp, basically, every stage in the creation of this painting.
…the entire process, from idea to completion.
I’ve been working hard to synthesize the over-24 hours of recorded video into a series of lessons that will kick-off my new Digital Painting Course for concept artists and illustrators.
The new course is called The Magic Box: Everything I Know About Digital Painting!
This epic collection of instructional videos, resource files and tutorials answers some of the most frequently-asked questions about my process.
…and it reveals many of the most effective Digital Painting Techniques that I’ve developed over the past five years working as a Visual Development Artist at Disney.
It is unlike anything you can find online.
