The 2nd Friday Art Walk
Open Studio Series: Creating Fantasy Characters with Ari Targownik
Calling all aspiring game artists and anyone who might be interested in this exciting event!
Having worked in the video game industry for over 10 years, Ari Targownik has participated in every part of putting a character into a game. In this demonstration, he will be focusing on a specific part of that process - Concept Art, which is when characters are visually designed. He will be sketching various fantasy characters, iterating on a couple of different archetypes (examples: wizards, warriors, etc.), and discussing some of the things that go into designing a character such as backstory, silhouette, contrast, and other aspects. Ari holds a Bachelor's degree in Fine Art (painting) from the Pratt Institute and is practicing Fine Art full time in his studio in Berkeley.
