Hello and Welcome to this Exclusive short Training Course on how to create a stylized character in both the softwares, Photoshop and Gimp.
In this series, we go through and concept out the stylized character software brothers, Photoshop and Gimp. Through this course, Tim Von Rueden will give you a complete run-through on how to create and concept these two characters first in Photoshop CS5, then in open source software Gimp 2.8, using a Wacom Intuos4 tablet.
What is this Course all about?
After the interview with Cameron Davis and reading the new OZ graphic novels with the wonderful art done by Skottie Young, I have been wanting to do a character series that wasn’t focused on realism but rather creating characters that are stylized and fun.
This course is great for beginners because I am only using the circle hard edged brush to complete both pictures. I am not doing any fancy color work or shading. I am using a two-tone color shading and the focus is bringing life and personality into these characters with limited tools and techniques and still having them look awesome! This short series on creating a stylized character will go through setting up the line art, and then coloring them in two separate tutorials in both the softwares, Photoshop and Gimp. Both very similar to each other but I wanted to show that since the tools are practically the same, the software doesn’t really matter. Then In the last video and combine the two characters into one canvas to finish it off.
