Each week we'll learn how to paint a common material such as leather, brass, glass, rock, and iron. We'll breakdown the factors that make those materials have their unique look so you have a thorough understanding of the subject. Throughout the lessons there are paint-alongs where we will jump into our painting programs together and I'll guide you step-by-step through the processes you'll use in your homework. The individual studies will culminate into illustrating a multi-prop arrangement to add to your portfolio.
"Clint's class was incredibly detailed and thorough, I never felt lost and by the end of the class was confidently rendering multiple textures."
