Visual Design Basics - Intro to Design

Alex senechal main a

I created this tutorial to give any artist a solid design foundation as well as a clear path forward in design.

Video here:

I also to include my thoughts on how to improve as an artist and designer. I find that people struggle to apply the principals and wanted to make it easier to pick up and start implementing in their own work. This is especially true for 3D art, as a 3D artist first, I know getting into design can be difficult, I include 3D examples and breakdowns so its easier to see contextualize and apply. Of course though these principals can be applied to any medium and at any skill level.

Images can be seen here:
