Course Overview

When it comes down to it, creating a realistic creature is more than painting a pretty picture. As concept artists, it's our job to provide creative options and beautiful solutions for production projects. That's why we're really excited to bring the legendary Nate Hallinan here to CGWorkshops. Nate's incredibly life-like images often prompt the question, "Is that really 2D?". The answer is yes! Nate is here to show you how he does it, and how you can do it too.

Nate says, "In this course I’ll provide you with painting techniques that help achieve an imaginary yet realistic look. We'll also explore methods for developing the concept aspect of concept art; such as characteristic behaviors and relatability to enhance the believability."

Every week, Nate will release a new set of videos and assignments to help you build your concept and character development skills. You'll start by selecting a broader scenario for creature to exist within, and from there Nate will help you refine your ideas and make strong design choices.  He'll give feedback via paintovers, our class forums and regular live web feedback sessions (always recorded for those who can't make it.)

Over the weeks, Nate will help you reference, develop and paint your character, until you have your final result - a showpiece for your folio.

Don't miss this painting workshop with a real difference.
