PAD – Production Art Department is Sydney’s first illustration school for entertainment design. The course it provides has been designed from the ground up by industry professionals. What is it all about?
Ever wished you could design landscapes for films, never before conceived sets for games or unique and original characters for either of the above or comic books? Well, if you did, now you have a chance to make your dreams come true. How?
To quote from the PAD website:
“PAD places core artistic skills at the very centre of its program. We consider technology to be a tool for artistic creation, in the same way that a brush is a tool for painting. Just as a brush will not make you a better painter, knowledge of software will not make you a better artist. For this reason, PAD focuses on the core artistic skills that enable you to use both brushes and software to create outstanding artworks.”
The core artistic skills are taught in four areas. Perspective, Light, Anatomy and Narrative. The students on top of the knowledge gained in these 4 keys areas, will be able to develop conceptual skills, design skills and execution skills. Figure Drawing Online will be providing the tuition of anatomy.
But have a look for yourselves what amazing skills and knowledge you can gain at the state of the art facilities of this unique school by attending this course.
