[Draft] Very early draft that I'll keep refining over time.
I'm often asked about good sources for learning concept art, so here's a minimalistic list of resources I often recommend because they played a vital role in my understanding of image making. Each of this resources worth every penny and hour I've been invested in.
Right, this is such a huge subject that it's almost ridiculous to try to make a list. Anything you can learn about the old masters is gold. But here's a list of 3 movements or periods I comeback often to:
- The Hudson River School painters
- The Orientalist painters
- The mid XIXth to early XXth Russian painters
- Color and Light for the realistic painter
- Imaginative Realism
- How to Draw
- How to Render
The Gnomon Workshop
- Online subscription to the library
- Nathan Fowkes twin courses on composition and color and light
- Mastering Composition
- The simple secret to better painting
