In this course, you will :
- Examine the materials required for the course. Then, look into Kyle's approach to surrealism and how you can incorporate it into your own creative process.
- Learn how to abstract the world around you into symbols and recast them as narrative elements in your mind.
- To define a conflict, make a series of lists, beginning with the dysfunctional objects in your living space. Rep for your reactions to this object, different settings, and an opposing force to create tension. Create a thumbnail of your composition using these visual elements. Then, using shape-based drawing techniques and perspective devices, create a sketch.
- Erase your underdrawing and ink over your sketch. Scan your work and save it as a Photoshop file for digital editing. Then, to bring your piece to life, learn how to use colour and texture.
- Discover how to save and share your work. Kyle concludes the course by sharing his tips for remaining curious and evolving as part of your creative process.
