Silhouettes to Characters

The Nevada Museum of Art offered a class titled “Designing for the Entertainment Industry” which is an eight week course introducing the skills to create concept art.  Todd White, the instructor, is a local artist with experience in car design, product design, theme park design, game design, storyboard, architectural rendering….and has clients such a Disney.  He is a graduate of Art Center College of Design , Pasadena, CA.  This was an opportunity not to be missed.

The first assignment is to create silhouettes with a large black marker as quickly and and many as we can.  Select three of these silhouetttes to expand their character.  I selected these three, a kid, a beast and a woman.  Not sure yet what they will reveal, but I’m sure they will carve themselves out of my imagination.
