Course overview Course overview
Create strong environment paintings
In this course, students will be going a bit further in what makes a good environment painting, from values, lighting and design to composition and colors. This class is an extension of the Environment Concept Design class. The goal here is to go more into the intricacies of environment painting and design specifically for the video game and feature film genres. A longer-term project will include design tasks as exteriors, interiors, establishing shots, and design call outs.

Henri Woon-Am / Spring 2018
Gilles provides very clear and helpful feedbacks, directly pointing out how and why your work should be changed, and how your art would be overall improved in the end. His expertise in environment painting, coupled with his professional but also laid-back behavior, makes the Q&As really enjoyable and informative.
