Ok guys... this project was beset with a few delays that were out of our hands but I'm really happy to announce that it's all finished! We're releasing the downloadable version now, and the physical DVDs are being produced and should be available in a few weeks. The price is the same for both... the only difference is shipping costs. // Anyway, enough chit chat!
This DVD documents the painting of the cover for Brandon Sandersons newest book, Warbreaker. It begins with an interview with Irene Gallo, Art Director at Tor Books, and ends with photographing the final painting. Throughout each step, Chesley Award winner Dan Dos Santos talks at great length about everything from salary to color theory. Though the subject matter is a book cover, all the principles taught are easily translated towards almost any commercial illustration. With over five hours of content, this is a definitive guide for anyone who wants to improve their knowledge and understanding of painting as it relates to working for clients.
5 hours, NTSC / 720 x 480 quicktime
