I took the Concept Art course to improve my Photoshop skills. Prior to the Gaming Design class at SCC I used Adobe Photoshop to clean up sketches for clients and to tweak Illustrator imagery for my website. I was actually under the impression I knew Photoshop relatively well.
Above is a Photoshop painting where I’ve inserted an altered flickr.com photo and a MAX model of my GULAG saucer. The painting, photo and the model blend seamlessly. My artwork is tight. It is not the loose, painterly style I admire and see so often on concept art websites, but it is a vast improvement. – Joe Gast
