Brad Rigney: A Hostile Takeover
In this 4.5 hour beast of a tutorial, artist Brad Rigney (Cryptcrawler) takes a rough thumbnail idea and carries it all the way through to it's beautiful and highly polished finish.
The demonstration begins with Brad talking about his initial idea and then painting in the background. It then shifts gears with a separate mini-tutorial where he clearly demonstrates the specific techniques which he uses throughout the rest of the tutorial. During the rest of the video Brad openly shares his process while adding a healthy dose of wisdom, common sense, and humor. Topics covered include composition, lighting, mood, texture, character design, and more.
Brad tells the viewer that he's looking forward to seeing what people do with his techniques, and we at ConceptArt.Org are looking forward to the results. Happy painting.
Once a mild-mannered, casual artist content with doing portraits of his friends' table-top RPG characters; Rigney soon descended into an endless, maddening obsession to be the best digital illustrator he could become after being exposed to the cosmic, mind bending talents that lay within the Conceptart.Org forums 8 years ago.
Now known only as "The Cryptcrawler" the once reasonable and tempered artist has been transformed into a sinister, shambling, art-obsessed creature of the night bent on dedicating every breathing moment to digital illustration, unleashing his freelance, artistic focus upon such hapless companies as Bungie, Fantasy Flight Games and now for the diabolical entity known as Massive Black Inc.
Brad also happily dwells in southern Mississippi with his wife Katherine and daughter Ginger.
