Fun little practice piece. Front root man was a concept my husband Reilly Lohr made a while back, and let me used for this. The background characters (demon, birdman and weird ghost creature are mine)

Schoolism Painting Creatures Class Review!

I loved this class.

I feel that I learned a lot during those weeks, it was actually quite challenging for me.  I see this as a huge plus because the only way you truly learn and get better at something is when you put yourself out of your comfort zone.

I always wanted to take one of Bobby Chiu's classes, because I really admire him as an Artist. I chose Painting Creatures because I am not a creature painter. I mostly paint portraits, but wanted to grow and further my abilities.

 Scale + hands and feet study! The overall shape of the character was provided in the class, I didn't put it here because I am unsure I can, even if it's for review purposes. I tried to create a sloth/monkey scaly dude. I was pretty fun!

The class is split into 9 lessons, you get to work with one of your ideas from the thumbnail phase to a finished illustration. Each class (if you chose to pay for the critiqued class) you summit an assignment and Bobby will send you back a video with critiques. He paints over your illustration and explains why he is making the choices he is making. It's pretty cool.

In each lecture you get a little bit of something new, how to paint hair for creatures (straight or curly), scales, eyes, coloring and lighting, etc.

I found that even though the price initially seems high, it's worth it. I learned a lot from the notes and critiques I got from the videos.  I wish I had more time to work on my piece, the class caught me in the middle of getting ready to move to another country and I didn't get to spend as much time on it as I probably would have liked to.

The class gets a big thumbs up from me, I can't wait to try another one. I have my eyes set on:

Designing with Color and Light with Nathan Fowkes (which sells out super quickly)

One of the Gesture Drawings class

and

Digital Painting with Bobbi Chiu

Schoolism is a great art school in which you can take online classes from the comfort of your home, from amazing artists. People that you see in magazines or books and say to yourself 'Wow'

Bye!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

New web design

Hello!

After having my old site for over 3 years I have finally decided to move my art site to squarespace which is the one my husband has been using for a while now. You can see his site here.

I hope you can find it enjoyable and not too complex, let me know if there is something bugging you about the new layout!
