"The Techniques of Ryan Church" (video review)
© Ryan Church and Gnomon Workshop
The Techniques of Ryan Church: Volume 3: Hi-Tech Architecture
A joint production of The Gnomon Workshop and Design Studio Press
A digital illustration lecture given by Ryan Church as he creates a digital painting using Corel Painter, this film gives useful insight into the illustration process. For this volume Church focuses on the mood and the appearance of an architectural scene, designing a painting resembling a film shot and demonstrating his techniques step by step. He explains the tools he uses as well as the differences between them, his drawing methods and compositional tactics. A clear and comprehensive look at digital art production, Church sets a good pace for the film, working within the realistic time constraints common to his field and demonstrating the quick and effective techniques necessary for such situations. The film is an excellent resource for beginners and experienced alike, providing useful tips and ideas. Bonus features include notes from the lecture, information on various digital media resources such as Gnomon, DV Garage, and Design Studio Press, and a gallery featuring other works by Ryan Church.
