Designing with Color and Light
with Nathan Fowkes

This course is a serious exploration of using color and light to create compelling concept art and environment design for entertainment art projects. I'll take you step by step through the practical application of:

- Color theory to create powerful color statements.
- Color choices that create a variety of emotional beats for storytelling.

- Designing atmosphere for a sense of environment and mood.
- Lighting design.
- Building your concept art portfolio.

Additionally, I'll show you how the production pipeline works at an entertainment design studio and the role of the art department in the design process. We'll go through the entire process of developing an idea by taking it through the stages of thumbnail comp, tonal rough, color rough and final color.
