In this 71-minute video workshop*, Chris Seaman (co-author of Ink Bloom from IMPACT Books) will show you how to create an action-packed fantasy scene in acrylics and oils, from initial sketches to painting a dramatic sky to adding life to your characters. Along the way you'll learn what brushstrokes work best for each section of your painting, how to mix color, tips for detailing and adding dimension to your characters and more. Follow along with this preview to paint in the background of this fantasy scene with acrylics, using a cool color palette to block in the impression of a sunset which will help lead viewers to the focus of the painting—the characters.
(Ink Bloom, by Jim Pavelec and Chris Seaman, shows you how to work with a manuscript, incorporate your own ideas, and turn out vibrant, thrilling, utterly fantastic illustrations. * Please note: This video is included in its entirety in Ink Bloom.)
