Learn how to design monsters from the ground up! This character concept course teaches you the process of going from a sheet of brainstormed ideas to a compelling piece of digital art. Along with learning the fundamentals of monster design I'll also be focusing on teaching you my shapecarving technique. You’ll get to see how I iterate on concepts and choose specific elements to zero in on and learn why the devil is in the details. Finally, there's advice sprinkled throughout the course to help you adapt this process so you can make it your own for any concept design jobs you tackle in the industry.
