So what masterclasses and workshops are there?
Zid – Part 1: How to Draw & Colour Digitally
- This would be the entry point where I will only touch on the technical side of the creative process.
- It is targeted towards groups who are unfamiliar with digital art, those who are starting out or considering the medium or whoever are curious to know the steps taken to create digital art.
- I will demonstrate my approach in step-by-step from drawing on paper, scanning, digital drawing/inking and colouring the work in different styles (simple flat colours & painted)
Zid – Part 2: Being Significant – Giving Essence to Your Work
- This is aimed towards the initiated. However, those who are more towards the group above can still benefit from this segment of the workshop.
- Less technical, more on the intrinsic process of image-making.
- I will touch on how artists can create a work that is not purely eyecandy (sickening pinup types e.g. girl with guns, girl with a giant robot, girl with a dragon) but has content.
- Consequently this part of the workshop can help give ideas to artists who are going through an art block and how they can break from it.
