About This Class

Hello Artist and thank you for taking an interest in the color and light class. This was a fun yet challenging class for me to make. People kept complimenting my artwork, not for my drawing skills (oh no), but on my use of color and light. So I dove deep inside to extract what it was I was actually doing and now I’m here to deliver all my secrets to you.  

Featured in the class

  • Basic lighting
  • Atmospheric perspective
  • Color tips
  • Lighting special effects in digital art
  • Painting demo
  • And much more

I really enjoyed this series. I loved the visual representations of light and shadows and the great explanations of bounce light. I feel like I'll watch this again because it was really helpful.
That was a really helpful course! Not just for digital painting but for art in general. Great work!
This class is very well thoughtout! I It was humorous as well as educational!
