How to Render Matte Surfaces 1
Shading Planar Surfaces with Scott Robertson
On this first of three titles in the Matte Surface rendering series, Scott shares with you the shading techniques he has been teaching for over a decade. Scott covers the necessary tools and materials, explaining how to use them. Next he explains and demonstrates the basics of how our brains interpret form via value changes. Scott uses observational video clips of a box in various lighting scenarios to reinforce his value assignment strategy. Walking you through several sketches, he shows his techniques for properly constructing the cast shadows of planar forms. The rendering examples demonstrate the use of pencil, chalk and marker. This title is intended as a "must-watch" for beginners and a good refresher for the more experienced artist/designer.
