You will meet Eduardo, his formative and professional trajectory, culminating in his current work. In addition, you will know his influences in the world of cinema and comics.

In the pre-production phase of your conceptual piece you will know the work of the conceptual artist and the work prior to the design: pitch creation, compilation of references and construction of the idea.

You will have a brief introduction to the rendering software, Keyshot, to understand the different materials, lighting and camera positions.

You will start sketching the frames that you will choose to tell your story.

Once your images are developed, you will render them and intervene with digital painting, photography and 3D for an optimal result. Finally, you will organize the image package to present your final product to a potential client.

What is this course's project?

You will create between 4 and 5 artistic frames to visually describe a script that you will elaborate previously with Eduardo's guidelines.

Who is it for?

To designers, illustrators and anyone interested in the concept art for the entertainment industry.

What you need

You will need notions of design and Adobe Photoshop or other image editing software, as well as knowledge of some 3D and rendering software.
