Hello lovelies! 

Just a quick update to announce that my new website is live! :) You can find all the usual artwork and a nice resource section listing all the tutorials, videos and time-lapses available to download.

I was thinking about adding an FAQ but then I remembered people don't really read those things... or do they? ;)



Hi everyone! You might remember last year I released my Skillshare Character Concept Art class and that went down a storm, over 2000 of you signed up for it and it received 100% positive reviews. The support was overwhelming so thank you to everyone that took the class!

It was my intention to release the follow up on again, but the site has changed considerably in the time since my first class, and it's not the most straight forward option this time. 

It's 36 minutes long and gives you a pretty good general overview of my average colour process. I've tried my best to explain things as thoroughly as possible for any beginners watching, info on layer ordering, colour choices, layer modes etc. I'm sure most of you will understand what I'm doing and why I'm doing it, but I haven't assumed that everyone will know by default. So explanations a-plenty! 

The full size PSD is included, with the B&W character from the previous class and the new colour version so you can toggle between the two. My brush pack is also included, which is available all the time regardless (you aren't paying for it!) but I've included it in the pack as well for convenience.

The tutorial is $9 and available to download right now! The only real difference between my previous Skillshare class and this new tutorial - is just that there isn't a written guide to accompany it, and that's reflected in the price. 

I'm totally open to releasing more tutorials and there will be freebies along the way, so if you have any specific requests then fire away! I should probably say that the next tutorial I have in mind will be all about painting skin! I've talked about it as much I can in this video, but a more in-depth tutorial is certainly on the cards. 

Character Concept Art: from thumbnail to final design.

Thank you so much for the tutorials! I watched your character creation tutorial on skillshare, so I HAD to buy the accompanying colorization tutorial when I saw it here. I'm just getting into digital art, and your tutorials were incredibly enlightening. Thank you again :)
