Description

Workshop: Problem Solving in Environment Design

Want to tackle environment / background art but have no idea where to start?

This workshop will introduce some basic principles and ideas when problem solving for environment concept design. We'll start with general things to think about, process and then dive into examples of how this is applied.

This workshop is everyone of all genders. Please note that the venue is not wheelchair accessible as there are several flights of stairs.


Before arriving please note:

Attendees should have a basic knowledge of image making (ie, values, composition, drawing). No laptops are required. However, if you'd like to receive critique on your environment concept art please see the below section.

Personal Paintover Reviews

Following the lecture part of the workshop, attendees will have the opportunity to receive critique on a paintover piece in their portfolio. You must have a completed paintover piece done prior to attending this workshop.

What's a paintover?
A paintover is when you directly paint or draw over someone else's image for feedback/ changes, usually in photoshop or a similar program.The advantage of doing this is usually to explain to people in real time and then they can ask questions, etc, since a lot of art is visual.

How do I get a time slot for a personal paintover review?

Anyone interested in reserving a spot for a paintover critique can grab a "Participant + Review" ticket type. Because these are personal reviews, we're asking for $20 CAD to hold your time slot. Upon arrival at the workshop, we'll refund your money! Cancelations must be requested via email (info@pixelles.ca) 48h before the workshop date to receive a refund and give someone else your spot.

Personal review slots are full ): How do I get on that waitlist?

You can either grab a regular "participant" ticket if they are available and email us (info@pixelles.ca) or put your name on the waitlist registration, as per usual! There is a possibility that time slots will free up, at the door, so if you have a paintover prepared it may be good fortune to bring it anyway.
