Our new release, taught by Ludovic Iochem, is designed for anyone who wants to improve their skills of creating beautiful imagery and explore what makes that image beautiful. While visual effects is a very technical industry, it is important to be able to create compelling and beautiful pictures. Using paintings, photography, and other imagery this course explores key concepts such as composition, lighting, perspective, colour harmony, and more.
Ludo, who has been a Digital Matte Painter and Environment Artist for more than 13 years, had noticed recently that VFX artists were more and more technical, but less and less conscious of basic rules of composition or color harmony. He has worked to improve this situation by creating and leading training for artists, and has been very successful in improving their basic artistic knowledge.
This course focuses on rules and concept which have been developed in art, painting, photography, or concept art. “I really wanted to create this course to go back to the fundamentals of what makes a nice image,” says Ludo. “It is extremely important to always keep these concepts in mind. That is obviously very clear for a Concept Artist or a Matte Painter, but also very true for a Lighting TD, a Layout artist or a Environment TD.”
