Are you a comic or storyboard artist, maybe an illustrator with a passion for graphic novels?
This course might be what you are looking for! Either if you are a beginner or an industry expert this video will help you speed up your process and get a quick result.
My name is Riccardo and I’m going to show you my typical approach to design boards with a graphic style.
In this tutorial, I’ll cover in approximately 1 hour how to draw a complex perspective efficiently by using 3d and photoshop, how to deal with a complex scene and remain creative during the process.
You will learn the basic of how to use SketchUp, deal with camera, perspective and how to experiment with style and shadows. We will take advantage of the 3dwarehouse to quickly create our scene and deal with light and effects.
Furthermore, I’ll show how to set up a perspective grid easily in 3d, for fast draw integration. Once you have created the grid you will be able to use it in any future project.
To finalize our board, we will move to photoshop and compose the work we have done in Sketchup, doing some extra work by painting and creating some special effects and shading in photoshop.

I am a professional storyboard artist and I downloaded this series in order to learn a new technique to improve and speed up my workflow. I can already think of a few jobs where I wished that I had applied this sketchup technique because I know it would have saved me time and improved the end results. I would recommend this series to any artist who is looking to add a new skill to their toolbox and for me I find it especially helpful because I often have to redraw settings from multiple angles. Be advised that the author uses Sketchup Pro and NOT the free version so some of the tools he uses are not available and the user interface is different.
