Daarken is an absolutely AMAZING character designer. His creatures, warriors and beasts are some of the most complete, realistic and stylistically awesome creations out there! And when you want to learn from someone you want to learn from the best!
So thats why I was so excited to see this amazing artist has taken the time to create video tutorials….and lots of them on his video tutorial site http://enliighten.com/ (also available on his youtube channel)! Full of tutorials on Digital Painting with Photoshop. He also covers a wide range of other topics too about freelance work.
One of the most exciting video tutorials for me was his :
Character Design – Liche Priest Part 01
So freaking cool, you got to check it out!
“In this tutorial Daarken takes you through his process of creating a character for Warhammer Online: Age of Reckoning. From start to finish, you will be able to see and hear Daarken’s thought process of designing a character from an existing IP and how he goes about adding color to a black and white concept.”
His video tutorial site (and youtube channel) are PHENOMENAL!!!! Free videos by one of the best character designers out there! You cant get much better than that. Be sure to check them all out!
I just posted the first four videos. You can find the final four videos on his youtube channel or you can find this tutorial in two long sections on his http://enliighten.com/ .
I really look forward to going deeper into checking out these videos and posting on them in the future! Also be sure to come back tomorrow I will have a great short interview with the man himself! Daarken!!!!
