Skaters gonna skate

Some environment and building concepts for my final for James Clyne. I was lucky enough for my Department Chair, Tim Flattery, to set me up with him. Both of them are insanely talented and the feedback James gave me helped me realize where I have a lot of problem areas I can improve on. Light, color, brushstroke, use of black and composition were some of the things we addressed. Time to get ready for 6th term.

This project took up the second part of my Character class with Kevin Chen and Hong Ly. It was a rally fun project, although it was almost always an uphill struggle for me to do characters. I think learning about clothing cut, value grouping and overall color were some of the most important things I walked away with from this class. Kevin and Hong both gave some great notes and demos. Also we got a visit from Eytan Zana, who gave a demo on his process for painting from life.

More from Gary's Arch 1 class, I wanted to paint underneath one or two of them but looking back its probably better just to do new ones, I keep finding compositional issues in them. Have to learn from it.
