CONCEPT ART
GENERATION

A Four-Hour Workshop

A Four-Hour Online Workshop on the Creation of Unique New Art Ideas and Compelling Concepts

It can be really difficult to come up with new ideas for your paintings or concept art. Or even if you have an idea, you might not know how to come up with the best variation, or the best way to present it.

So many artists just start painting without taking the time to properly explore their ideas. They just dive right in and start painting and soon become frustrated with the results.

The truth is, almost all professional artists use concept generation strategies to better understand their subject before they even start working on their final painting.

These are the strategies that you’ll be learning in this workshop—so you can find your best ideas and turn them into amazing paintings.

During this intensive four hour workshop with professional concept artist Adrian Virlan, you’ll learn his methods for coming up with interesting and compelling concepts, and watch as he takes the best idea and develops it into a full painting.

If you’ve been looking to improve your ideas, find out exactly how you can create eye-catching concepts in your artwork, and get feedback and instruction from an accomplished professional artist, now is your chance.

Here’s the workshop outline:

  • Hour 1: Brainstorm Sketching
    Adrian will walk you through his strategies for brainstorming ideas and coming up with intriguing concepts from scratch, exploring variations and discussing framing, storytelling, and world-building from a blank canvas.
  • Hours 2-3: Idea Development
    Next, you’ll watch as the best idea is selected and developed further. You’ll learn about using lighting, composition, and color to develop and enhance your concept even further.
  • Hour 4: Student Feedback and Questions
    On the final day, Adrian will be going over student submissions from the Feedback Pass (limited spots, see below!), giving feedback, and doing live paint-overs, as well as answering any remaining questions that you might have.
