In this lesson, Mark shows one of the methods for bringing a movie poster composition to a photographic level. He prints out one of the comps on grey pastel paper and renders it, using color pencils.
In this lesson, you will learn how to plan and set up a photoshoot of your body doubles. Mark does 3 photographs for 3 different compositions and shows how to size them to 6’x9’ standard format, using a photocopier. Then he sizes actors’ heads the same way and attaches them to body double photos. Now he is ready to start drawing the comp. He takes you through this whole process so you could repeat it yourself and use body doubles in creating your poster.
In this lesson, Mark demonstrates how to attach designed heads to figures, using a photocopier, scissors, and tape. Then he puts heads and figures under the tracing paper and draws the composition. You will learn how to make characters look natural.
In this lesson, you will learn how to properly sort and organize your work materials, such as photo references, head designs, and thumbnail concept sketches. Mark will explain the importance of being organized for meeting deadlines and cover the labeling requirements. He will also introduce a workflow of drawing a montage composition and show the difference between tracing and designing heads and figures.
In this lesson, Mark covers the tools and the materials you will use in this course, shows how to design actors’ heads with and without a light box, and reviews top illustrators’ works.
In this first lesson, Mark will go over stages of creating a movie poster, building a career in entertainment design, and the main concepts of movie poster composition. He will also show an example of developing a movie poster from a thumbnail sketch.
It’s time to address a vital element of preparation for the final project: quick-pose drawings. Iliya works with his model to draw 13 short poses from various angles. First, he works with simplified construction, then contour, line, and direct tone. Drawing shorter poses from your live model or from reference will train your mind and hand, giving you the strongest possible understanding of your subject.
In this lesson, we are going to bring together all of the structure and anatomy of the head and neck we’ve been studying in order to create a fully rendered portrait drawing from a live model.
In this lesson you will do a study of the form creating muscles of the neck using reference from one-of-a-kind castings of a real human cadaver by famed art anatomist Eliot Goldfinger.
In this lesson, you will learn the skeletal structure of the neck, clavicles and scapulae, and how they articulate to create the shoulder girdle.
