Chapter Content

Chapter1: Setting Value & Form
This Full length "Start To Finish" DVD begins with setting our base colour's and blocking in our major shapes and forms. All base colour's are listed and blocked in on screen in this chapter.
Chapter 2: Transition Stokes And Colour
This chapter concentrates on the creation of shape and form. The viewer is taught to use direction of stroke and negative painting to establish basic shape and form. The use of transition stokes are introduced and demonstrated. Larger area's are then broken down to further the creation of shape and structure.
Chapter 3: Adding Detail
With a solid foundation and strong structure and form established we move on to the creation of detail. The viewer learns the use of working back and forth between their vales and the use of colour temperature change. The use of "washes" and airbrush washes are introduced in this chapter, note that a airbrush is not required, but is an asset to the evolving artist.
Chapter 4: Detailing The Face
This chapter demonstrates the art of fine detail through the use of "area break down". The viewer will learn to detail the nose, add fine detail to the muzzle fur, detail the eyes and how to differentiate between short and long hair brush strokes..
Chapter 5: Detailing The Mane
Detailing now continues to the long hair of the mane. once again specific instruction is given in the area of using warm and cool colour's and the use of directional strokes to enhance the look of fur.

This chapter ends with how to create subtle and strong curves in fur.
Chapter 6: Detailing the Muzzle
This chapter explains the use of alternate colour's and how to achieve the "look" of white fur.
