Not only great ideas for your horror characters but lots of info on use of tools in digital painting.
Very well explained clear and dynamic.
Great class! This was a fun project and I learned some new ways about approaching colour palettes and composition that I'll keep with me. I do agree with some of the previous reviews however in terms of direction. Damien is a great artist and I feel that this class in particular may be tough for someone without a basic understanding of digital painting as he doesn't go into extensive detail about brushes or settings etc. I still recommend it though!
