with David Belliveau
22nd February – 9th March, every Monday and Wednesday, 19:30 – 21:30
In February 2016, digital artist David Belliveau will return to ESDIP Berlin to host his latest digital painting class, Perfect Portrait.
Over the course of 6 interactive workshops (each running for 2 hours), you will learn about the whole process of digital painting, from sketch to polished masterpiece. Along the way you’ll learn a ton of great tips and techniques that will help you build your confidence, and develop skills for all areas of digital painting. Classes will consist of both teaching and exercises, so you will get lots of hands-on practice time.
David Belliveau is a seasoned illustrator and co-founder of digital painting community Paintable. Enrollment in this course will also grant you access to the private community he runs there, where you will be able to connect with other aspiring digital painters and get feedback on your work.
Although a basic understanding of Photoshop is advised (ie. How to use layers and the brush tool), the basics will be cover before moving onto more advanced techniques. You will need your own laptop and graphics tablet.
Among many other things, topics will include:
› Sketching (brushes, techniques, and a geometric approach)
› Rendering and values (painting light and shadow)
› Coloring (going from grayscale to color)
› Texture (adding realism to your paintings)
› Styling (learn how to add style & character)
Perfect Portraits is designed to drastically improve your digital painting skills, condensing what could take months to learn into just 12 hours. Are you ready to join?
