New enviro tutorial in the works

After almost a year I am getting close to releasing a new video tutorial, yay. I asked around for suggestions on what I should make my new tutorial about, and most people said an environment. Sooooo, I decided to go ahead and do it. As I’m sure most of you know, I am not really known for my environments. Most of the environments I have painted are still under NDA and will probably never see the light of day, plus they are all fantasy environments. Instead of going with what I know, I decided to go out of my comfort zone and paint a sci-fi environment…one with architecture to boot (another thing I don’t really paint very often).

Right now I am in the process of editing the video. After that I will need to add the audio and create a trailer, so I’m not sure when I will be finished. I hope to have the tutorial finished in the next two weeks or less.

In the Final Charge tutorial I asked for questions from the audience and I wanted to do that again. If you have any questions you want to ask about my process, my thoughts, the industry, or anything that comes to mind, just leave me a comment on here or on my Facebook page and I’ll try to answer them to the best of my ability. Thanks!

  1. I’m really looking forward to this one as like you said, it’s so different to what most people know you for (and I love Sci-Fi environments).

    The one question I would really like you to answer is something that I have a huge problem with myself when doing ‘architecture’ enviros;

    What is your mindset or how do you keep everything looking ‘loose’ and painterly while keeping in mind the perspective of the architecture?

  2. Adam – Thanks! Hopefully in my narration I can offer some new things that differ from my other tutorials. Next I should talk about integrating characters with an environment.
