Conjoined II at Copro Gallery

Conjoined II at Copro Gallery

I curated this amazing group sculpture show for Copro Gallery in Santa Monica, CA. It's up until Feb 11, 2012 and you gotta see it to believe it. It's definitely one of the best shows Copro gallery has ever had (according to the guy who runs the gallery). The realistic Beavis and Butthead by Kevin Kirkpatrick that went viral last week was created for this show!

My first tutorial DVD- DIGITAL CREATURE PAINTING W

My first tutorial DVD- DIGITAL CREATURE PAINTING W

DIGITAL CREATURE PAINTING WITH CHET ZAR In this tutorial DVD, I take you through my process of designing a creature in Photoshop® using my own unusual variety of professional and aesthetic techniques. I start with a blank document and no specific guidelines, developing my rough ideas into a fully realized character. Observe every step of the painting's evolution as I explain my thought process and workflow. Topics covered include: developing a rough sketch, value and color, liquify, painting hair using custom brushes, and adding detail using layer styles. 140 Minutes of Lecture. http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y240/chetzar/cza01h2.jp
