Hi, my name is Ethan Lo, I’m from Vox Art Studio.
I’ve been into art education since 2006,and occasionally involve myself in digital content industries such as animation, game and other industries which need digital illustration.
My personal favorite field in digital art is creating conceptual environment art.
Especially, an open world either in fantasy or sci-fi genre.
The process of creating an environment art is always an escape to me.
I love to explore my imagination and often lose myself into the world which I have created.
This is how I found my happiness and I wish to share it to you as well.

The digital art software which I’m teaching is KRITA.
KRITA is an open source software which means it is totally free.
You may visit their website to download a copy of either the Windows or Mac version.
This course is for those who are beginners in digital art and wish to learn new techniques and tools that can boost their creativity and efficiency.

Throughout the course, you will learn:

How to set up your own brush tag & customize your personal brush preset.
You will learn how to utilize tools in KRITA to increase your effectiveness in painting.
For art beginners, I have created a clear step by step tutorial in creating environment assets or what we call props design.
Understanding composition and perspective drawing in conceptual environment art.
Learn how to paint over photograph technique in creating concept art.
If you have no idea how to start your concept art, you may start from getting inspiration from your researched photos and start building on it.
Last but not least, introducing photobashing technique which is a highly effective technique in creating conceptual environment art.

This is normally used by concept artists to speed up their workflow and achieve a more realistic style.

So, no worries, if you are new to this.
I will guide you through from entry level to advance level tools and techniques.
That’s great news to you right?
Why don’t you give us a try.
