Today's post begins with the wonders of free resources online. Specifically, there is a website tutoring individuals on digital painting. My son Jake is a computer science major with an emphasis in game design. Last summer, he took a class on digital painting (see his work above). The university instructor relied heavily on some free lessons that are posted online. I thought the instructor was pretty smart. If someone is an expert and has free lessons posted, use them.
The expert is Feng Zhu.
The concept artist, Feng Zhu, has a portfolio that is unbelievable. From his website, it says: Founding his own design company, Feng Zhu Design (FZD), his client includes Microsoft, Electronic Arts, Sony, Activision, Industrial Light+Magic, NCSoft, Warner Brothers, Lucasfilm, Bay Films, Epic Games, and many other top studios. In Hollywood, he has worked closely with well established directors including George Lucas, Steven Spielberg, James Cameron, Michael Bay and Luc Besson.
