The ultimate goal for the concept artist is to create an individual artistic design language that is unique to them. Nick’s demo takes the viewer through the process he uses to get as close to this goal as possible. The ephemeral nature of this subject is discussed within the framework of historical context. Inspiration sources and methods for cleansing the mind and body are shown, and a hands-on process is demonstrated. Over 140 pages of sketches lead to 6 pencil rendered images that define a novel look and form that can be applied to a wide variety of designed objects.

Syd's first DVD introduces the student to the principles of creating thumbnail sketches and subsequent line drawings in the process of creating a successful composition. Topics illustrated include establishing value using only shades of black, and then using those shades to identify levels of detail in the composition, including vehicles, architecture, people and foliage. He guides the viewer through the process of choosing appropriate camera angles, and determining the geometry of the image. Syd goes through the process of defining proportion, the horizon line, the vanishing point, perspective and the ground plane, resulting in a series of sketches ready for further development.

This comprehensive introduction to animal anatomy is for artists who want to draw authentic-looking animals from their imagination. Marshall demonstrates that the core of this skill is in knowing animal bones and muscles, constructing them as three-dimensional forms, and practicing these disciplines until they become easy enough to let your impulses take over. He uses hundreds of drawings to show the major components of various animals, how their anatomy works, and how to draw them so that they look anatomically authentic, solid and alive. 3D artists looking to enhance their understanding of basic animal form and motion will also benefit from Marshall's presentation.

A solid understanding of Perspective gives the artist the means to draw what they see both accurately and believably. This series on the Fundamentals of Perspective will provide artists with the understanding of not only the concepts but also puts them into practice as Illustration master Gary Meyer guides you through each exercise. In this lecture titled Fundamentals of Perspective 3: Three-Point Principles and Concepts, we begin by discussing three-point perspective. Here, Gary breaks down three-point perspective and illustrates the terminology and concepts to consider when using three-point perspective. We then move on to a variety of topics, starting with methods for plotting shadows in perspective using both natural and artificial light scenarios. The series ends with Gary discussing how to correctly plot reflections in both one and two-point perspective and ends by demonstrating how to plot and transfer scale in reflections.

A solid understanding of Perspective gives the artist the means to draw what they see both accurately and believably. This series on the Fundamentals of Perspective will provide artists with the understanding of not only the concepts but also put them into practice as Illustration master Gary Meyer takes you through each exercise. In this lecture titled Fundamentals of Perspective 2: Two-Point Principles and Concepts, we continue the discussion with an overview of Two-Point Perspective. Gary discusses methods of measuring and plotting scale correctly in two-point perspective by first discussing ways to transfer scale correctly, then using those techniques, he demonstrates how to correctly draw from plans and elevation diagrams. Gary then demonstrates how to plot various surfaces like ellipses and incline surfaces in perspective. Lastly, he discusses concepts dealing with auxiliary vanishing points, the cone of vision and using both one and two point perspective correctly in a drawing.
