Character Design Techniques
Traditional to Digital Process with Keith Thompson
In this lecture, Keith Thompson reveals his process for taking a zombie creature concept from a thumbnail sketch to the finished drawing. Keith demonstrates each step, from idea development and creating the initial drawing using traditional media to scanning the drawing into the computer and then applying colored glazes in Adobe Photoshop®. Keith also explains how to maintain the essential gesture and feel of the thumbnail all the way through to the final concept art. The entire traditional media to digital process is also applied to a collection of extra views of the character. Keith explains how these alternate angles and a set of orthographic rotations are designed to help the 3D modeler.
