Illustration Techniques with Dave Dorman - Volume 2: Traditional Painting in Oils and Mixed Media

This second DVD shows the development of a full-color illustration based on the pencil art from the previous DVD. Dave demonstrates his techniques for completing the illustration using a multitude of media including oil paints, acrylics, colored pencils, markers and more, all on one piece of art. He shows a variety of methods for manipulating the paint and discusses color theory and dynamic lighting techniques in relation to the drama and action of the scene. He also shows how fine detailing and loose texturing both have a place in drawing the eye around the art. In this lecture, Dave emphasizes experimentation with painting techniques not only to achieve the desired result but also to effectively meet the deadline of a commercial illustration project.

Artist Bio

Eisner Award-winning artist and Air Force brat Dave Dorman has lived and traveled around the world, which has noticeably influenced his diverse body of work. Dave attended St. Mary's College in Maryland, and Joe Kubert School of Cartoon and Graphic Art before leaving to teach himself oil painting. Minus an instructor's influence, Dorman experimented and adapted unorthodox, oft-imitated techniques, many of which he explains in his Gnomon Workshop DVDs. Dorman's first big break was a cover for Heavy Metal Magazine in 1982. He followed that up with extensive work on Indiana Jones, Star Wars (fans voted him the #1 Star Wars Artist), Alien, Predator, AVP, Batman, Spiderman, G.I. Joe, Magic: The Gathering, World of Warcraft, King Kong, Star Trek, Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter and his own critically acclaimed project, The Wasted Lands.
