Interior Concept Design

Do you possess good digital painting and perspective skills but don't yet have the advanced interior design knowledge and expertise to create high quality interior environment concepts? 

Do you dream of designing iconic interiors for the entertainment industry that enhance the storyline and amplify the visual experience? The ability to design convincing interior spaces is possibly the most useful specialization a concept artist can have. Most AAA video games and movies tend to require more concept art for unique interior environments than anything else.

In this interior concept design class, you will learn to envision, design and paint a rich and complete 2-level interior space from start to finish. Through lecture, demonstration and in class exercises, you will be guided step-by-step through the entire process of creating jaw-dropping interior concepts. You will learn effective research techniques and essential principles of composition that will enable you to efficiently sketch interior spaces in 2 point perspective as well as using a 3D software. In addition, you will also learn advanced interior design principles and powerful presentation techniques so you can integrate narrative elements and place them in your design in a way that best communicates the concept and interests the viewer. 

By the end of this class, you will have the understanding and skills necessary to efficiently create beautiful and believable interior concepts for the entertainment industry. You will have several stunning new interior environments for your portfolio, an improved design sense, increased painting speed and a much deeper understanding of lighting and interior design. And you will have become proficient at one of the most valuable skill sets in the industry.
