Scene Composition and postwork clinic.

Drew Spence is presenting a scene-set up and postwork live webinar clinic this Sunday the 9th December , based on his experience of working on hundreds of scenes and renders for his professional comic work. It’s a chance to meet Griffin and gain his input on any scenes or renders that you need assistance with. He’ll also show different case studies of scenes and postwork situations that have maximized his renders.

https://digitalartlive.com/event/postwork-clinic-your-postwork-challenges-solved/

This workshop is a scene composition and postwork “clinic”. If you’re having trouble with any scene where you’re aiming to produce a polished book cover illustration, a product cover, a graphic novel panel, a character or a landscape based scene, we’ll suggest composition improvements and offer postwork tips.

  • Learn from Drew’s own case studies of actions, filters, lighting, composition techniques learned over the years
  • Showcase your scenes/renders and gain professional feedback from Griffin (Drew Spence)
  • Advice on virtual camera set ups, composition, framing, lighting and postwork.
  • Solve your current challenges that you may have with postwork when using Photoshop 
  • Repairs and fixing flaws in the rendered image.

Join us in this workshop, led by Griffin Avid, a professional comic book artist who is a graduate of Stony Brook University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Fine Art and holds various certificates – from graphic arts to web design.

We’ll be using DAZ Studio and Photoshop to help you take your basic scene and render to a more professional and effective image. This workshop is about assisting you, so please bring along your renders (up to a maximum of 4 renders) ready to show from your desktop. You can also forward your renders to us ready for the webinar, by using our Hightail dropbox 

Date: Wednesday 9th December

Duration: About 1.5 hours.

– Fixes for repair and the many ways to save a “bad” render.

Learn options to save and salvage your work – without the time-consuming re-render option. 

– Re-frame

Advice on re-positioning the camera and re-framing your work to capture the right mood and actions in a scene. 

– Special Effects

Enhance the magic, sci-fi or action elements of your render. Learn some ways to create special effects in your Daz Studio interface and take the look to the next level in post. Includes mention of must-have products that will enable your renders to contain all the energy and power they deserve.

– Lighting Effects and Helpers

Step-up your renders with adjusting the lighting. Push your dramatic lighting to max in Daz and in post. We’ll break a few rules and create a set of options to push the boundaries of the iray engine. Includes some cheating to get around long rendering times.

episode 19 The Incendiary – new story arc starts!

Always a day of excitement when a new story arc starts. Lots of great feedback for this arc. Thanks to all the supporters of the Force Six comic title.

19b they talk

19c more words

Interesting that comiXology simply chose the first three pages and gave no hints as to what was going to happen next. They probably figured the dragon was a big reveal and needed to wait until you dug in. Most of our readers know what to expect so, here are a few more pages.

Page Pull Force Six dinner invite

You know, what happens is, comiXology picks a few pages to preview for every title. I find it incredibly…interesting that they picked pages from the dinner scene instead of any of the fight scenes. I guess their editor(s) liked this moment. Thanks comiXology!

They must have loved that sequence.  Maybe there’s someone reading this who has never read a Force Six comic before. This is also from the same episode.
