The Illustration Master Class is taught by:
Dan Dos Santos
It's a week long workshop filled with advice, lectures, demos, stories, and critiques from the teachers -- and everywhere in between each student completes an assignment under the guidance of the the faculty. Most of the assignments were scifi/fantasy book cover oriented.
Illustration Master Class Day 1 update
We met the faculty and after a really beautiful presentation about each teachers’ work we were off in no time getting set up in the studios.
They gave us our sketchbooks:
This was followed by group critique with Irene Gallo (the art director of Tor books), Greg Manchess, and Donato.
I revised my sketch and took the art directed suggestions into a further-refined drawing.
Then came dinner and an awesome lecture on getting proper photo reference/working with models.
This week continues to be absolutely amazing.
