Gnomon releases new concept art training DVD

Sunday, April 22nd, 2012 | Posted by Jim Thacker

The teaser for Aaron Limonick’s session from Gnomon’s online Master Classes 2011. The material now forms the basis of a new 276-minute training DVD, Concept Design: From Abstraction to Production.

The Gnomon Workshop has released a new concept art training DVD, Concept Design: From Abstraction to Production, from Naughty Dog’s Aaron Limonick.

The 276-minute video shows how chance can form an important tool for keeping your concept work fresh. Limonick begins with a simple ink blot image and develops architectural forms from the resulting shapes.

Paying particular attention to lighting and atmospheric effects, he steadily works up the original random image into a finished concept design.

Working in Photoshop, Limonick uses the tutorial to set out a multitude of practical digital painting techniques.

A graduate of Art Center College of Design, Aaron Limonick’s first job in the industry came about through a graffiti art collaborator. Since then, he has worked as a concept designer and illustrator on projects including the Tony Hawk and Guitar Hero franchises, The Bourne Conspiracy and Transformers: War for Cybertron.

Concept Design: From Abstraction to Production is available now on DVD and direct download, price $59.
