About This Class

This class teaches fun and easy techniques for rendering various materials and objects commonly requested of concept artists. Students will be led through several simple exercises to get comfortable rendering realistic metal, wood, "jewels" and glass containers with Adobe Photoshop. After that, students choose from one of three simulated real world assignments: suit of armor, pistol or sword. Professionals seeking to become more efficient will find this course very valuable, but novices who want to paint cool armor or weaponry will enjoy it and will level upĀ as well.

Hardy has the 3 qualities I enjoy in an instructor. 1. Is easy to listen to 2. Imparts lessons on the theory behind the art 3. Gives instruction on the technical aspect of how to create the art physically. I would recommend this to anyone.
Just another amazing class from this guy, love it!
