Your client has a big cover illustration. You show him your brilliant idea in a tiny two inch thumbnail sketch. Oh cruel fate! The poor man is unable to extract the brilliant image sealed within your mind. You fail to get the job, which means you fail to make the money, which means you fail to buy a toothbrush, which means your breath stinks.
Enter the "Quick Sketch" (tm), a powerful tool used by artists to convey their ideas powerfully and without a lot of time expenditure. Short deadline? No problem. Want to make something cool in the two hours before your girlfriend comes over? Check and mate.
In this download, Jason Chan takes the viewer through the completion of two sketches, the first of which being his winning Thunderdome entry at the Revelations workshop in Seattle. He won't tell me where the second image came from, but it does look like his own work (pretty much). As usual, Jason delights the viewer with his discussion of both technical and non-technical apsects of art making. He also talks about his approach to working on shorter images, which gets into the nitty gritty of what makes an image really work.
This is definitely one to get, unless you enjoy bragging to your friends about how many weeks it took you to render just the clouds alone!! In that case, don't get it, because then who would you be?Quality:
