Quick demos for my concept art class from Jean Trubert art school in Paris.
After shooting photos in the morning at La Villette, to work on camera placement, composition and focal length, the afternoon we covered color grading techniques applied to concept art.
The idea was that students use their photos shot in the morning and turn them, with a very minimal amount of painting, into cinematic looking shots.
Once mastered, these techniques applied to digital painting are extremely versatile and creative.
