So this summer – the summer of 2017, I took an online course in Fundamentals for Environment Design at The Computer Graphics Master Academy (CGMA).
Fundamentals for Environment Design is a course about what creates a compelling environment from the ground up. The course explores fundamentals such as perspective, drawing , storytelling, painting, creating atmosphere, establishing lighting and how we can combine all these different elements for a full scene.
It was an intense couple of weeks with loads of drawing and sketching despite not always have the time or energy for it. But I am so happy I took the course. All the feedback I got was relevant and constructive and I am so much better for it. I can’t say I am super happy with my sketches but I have to see them as a learning process and hopefully in the future there will be more time (and energy) for more environment sketches.
