- Studying Patrick Jones and Boris Vallejo
In this first video we will introduce these two great artists studying their particular use of color and light adapting it to our figures. We will see the rules to make a realistic fantasy with an illustration style using the background in our favor.
- Preparation and pose
I will teach you to get more realism with the sculpture by creating micro details like hair and adding a spear. We will sculpt gazelle foot prints and see the subtle differences to choose the perfect angle to show the strength and personality of our character. We will also pre-illuminate with airbrush and choose colors that we probably never use.
- How to paint skin inspired by Boris Vallejo and Patrick Jones
In these four parts we will see in depth how to paint the skin by airbrush and brush, using the previous study of color. We will talk about the importance of the study of features, the silhouette of the elements to provide volume and we will see how to paint with the point of the brush, a “new” way of painting for me that is giving very good results.

- How to paint hair and aggressive projected shadows
We will paint a Loreal hair with micro shines and we will investigate what makes a color scheme “natural” and what does not, leaving the tertiary elements out of view with the appropriate colors. We will see the subtle differences between aggressive and soft projected shadows and learn to paint them easily.
- How to paint the antelope
We will see how to texture the animal’s skin and we will finish learning how to simulate the deadly wound with bright blood
- How to take high quality photos with a suitable background and how to paint the terrain
I will explain the materials that I always use to take professional photos: camera, light box, background. We will talk about tricks of angles that give personality to the figures, we will work a perfect background to enhance it and we will see how to paint the base.
