Creature Design Course – Coming Soon!

Next up…Designing Cool Creature Concepts

Creature Design Sketches by RAM
Creature Design Sketches by RAM

Ever wonder how people come up with tons of great ideas? Do they just have some sixth sense when it comes to illustrating fantastical beasts? Nah! They just know you need to study from nature more. Animals, insects, plants, sea life, even microscopic life forms will give you all you need to create that next mythological monster.

So in this next series of lessons we delve into that concept. I will show you how to create studies from the spine of various animals to have a foundation for your creature design. We will talk about the importance of quick thumbnails to explore a multitude of ideas. Then we will cover Predators versus Prey and what some of the noticeable differences are. Then we will put it all in action with a creature concept or two.

This will all be in a drawing style and not software specific so that digital and traditional artists can follow along. Working on the lessons now so check back for updates if you are interested.

Digital Painting in Manga Studio 5 – Character Design

Digital Painting in Manga Studio 5 – Character Design

In this Course you will learn How to Create a Fantasy Art Character from the rough sketch all the way to the finished paint work. We start with the drawing process and I explain how to make changes to the concept and not get too worried about everything being perfect in the beginning. There are lots of ways to edit the work and keep pressing forward within Manga Studio 5 / Clip Studio Paint.

We will then cover how to lay in the base paint work and use that to create and save our selections. You will learn how to use the layers to aid in your painting process, as well as how to work in a non-destructive approach.

Once the foundational information is in place we will begin to apply our digital painting effects with a variety of brushes. ( You will get access to all the brushes I use in this Course. )

You will also learn how to create and apply a texture effect for the chain mail on the characters armor. We will be using the “Distort” and “Mesh Transformation” features to accomplish this.

Through this course you will learn how to use : Layers and Groups, Combine Modes ( Blending Modes ), Custom Brushes, Hard and Soft Edge Shadows, Layer Masks, Quick Masks, Blending Brushes, Tonal Correction, Mirrored Windows, as well as General Drawing and Painting Techniques.

This course is 9 Hours and 17 Minutes total run time. 35 Individual Lessons.

You get the Layered Art Files and the Custom Brushes to work along with.

I am here if you have any questions or feedback for me to make this a better Course for everyone. So please feel free to let me know!

Learn to Draw Actions Heroes – Step by Step

Super excited to share that my new book, “Learn to Draw Action Heroes” is now available for Pre-Order on Amazon! I just received my advanced copies and the quality and page layouts are sweet. Impact Books does a tremendous job putting all this content together. The art isn’t half bad either. 😉

The actual book will be available on September 13th 2017. It is 144 page step by step guide to drawing superheroes. I tried my very best to make this extremely comprehensive and easy to follow along with. This should be a great beginner to intermediate guide for comic book artists.

I go through various parts of the body and show lots of break downs. I have always learned the most from these types of studies so I felt it made the most sense to teach others in this manner.

Here is a sample page to check out the look –
