Bert Monroy creates digital paintings that fool the eye and delight the senses. And he's been at it for over thirty years, producing illustrations for clients such as Adobe and Pixar. Follow along in this course with the development of his latest work, Amsterdam Mist, and learn how to apply his techniques to your own artwork in Photoshop or Illustrator. Bert concentrates on the structures in the painting: the bridges and buildings that make up the incredibly detailed canal scene. He'll show how to model elements like railings, curbs, windows, posts, staircases, lamps, and even flags. He'll also create textures and show how to repurpose them throughout the painting. Join him on this journey to the Netherlands and return with souvenirs that you can add to your artistic toolbox.
So, in this, the first volume of the making of Amsterdam Mist, I'm going to talk about the structures. Structures being the bridge, the bridge beyond, the bridge we're standing on, and all the buildings that make up the two sides of this canal. Now, there's a lot of techniques and features that went into this. For instance, brick textures. There's multiple brick textures on the street and on each of the buildings I'm going to show you how each of these textures were created. And I'm going to show you how to modify what you've created in order to use it somewhere else, which makes it important.
It's not exactly what I'm doing, it's how I'm doing it. Because you might never have to make a street in Amsterdam, but it's the techniques that I'm going to teach you here on creating all these different steps might come in handy for something that you're faced with. So now let's see what went into Amsterdam mist. Let's see how much you can learn based on what I learned while I was creating it.
