In this follow-up course to Environment Concept Design, students will be diving deeper into the elements that make up a good environment painting—from values, lighting, and design to composition and colors. The goal for this course is to gain a deeper understanding and mastery of the intricacies of environment painting and design, specifically for the video game and feature film genres. A longer-term project will include design tasks as exteriors, interiors, establishing shots, and design call-outs.
