CGMA Academy, Lighting and Color Key for Production
I'm currently taking a class at CGMA Academy, studying Lighting and Color Key for Production with Mike Hernandez. I think he's at Dreamworks right now, and have been working on movies such as Shrek, to mention one. And he's my current teacher now! Respect.
My first week is already over, and here's my first assignment!
We had to pick one of the still frames that he uploaded for us, and then make greyscale paintover using the lighting that was described underneath each image.
I picked a still frame from Kung Fu Panda, where I obviously had to turn a daytime frame into one with both moonlight and a dramatic underlighting upon the character himself.
Tried to keep it simple and easy to read, keeping the amount of detail rather low.
Fingers crossed that I got it right.
It's been fun so far though, and I'm looking forward to learn more from him :)
Anyone else studying at CGMA at the moment, or have been taking courses there?
Which classes did you attend?
