David offers a look into his diverse sketching process and style. Beginning with a quick overview of lighting and shading basic forms. From there, he touches on a wide range of subject matter including vehicles, alien spacecraft, cartoon caricatures, alien creatures, gas masks and video game controllers. Follow along as David takes a 3D model form created in Z-brush and uses it as an underlay to create a new design concept. There is also some photo-retouching using Adobe Photoshop. These techniques were created entirely in digital format using Sketchbook Pro, Photoshop and a Wacom Cintiq 21UX display. Learn from one of the top instructors at the world renowned College For Creative Studies (CCS).
