This weekend New York hosts its biggest annual 'pop culture' convention - New York Comic Con, and Schoolism LIVE has teamed up with the crew over at NYCC to host six of today's leading creative minds. Amongst the amazing panel, RSAR artist Karla Ortiz will be teaching a workshop centered around Character Illustration:
"In this workshop, live-action concept artist, Karla Ortiz, teaches her methods for illustrating characters in a narrative setting from conceptual idea to finish. Creating a relationship between the viewer and the artwork is a tricky task, but by keeping in mind narrative hierarchies, composition of elements, and a character’s personality, you will be able to make your character feel more alive in a storied world.
This workshop is ideal for intermediate to advanced level students."
Although the workshops this time around are SOLD OUT (cause duh, the guest panelists are great), consider this a friendly nudge to get your tickets early next time!
And for those who may be interested in joining in on the NYCC fun, the only available date at this time is Thursday October 6th; so get your ticket!
