DVD Chaos & Evolutions

10 september 2010

Video above : Chaos & Evolutions DVD for Youtube. 1h30 of the main video tutorials.


CE
Chaos&Evolutions is a DVD tutorial with hours of advanced course about digital paintings, concept art, character design, creature design, environments, illustrations and model sheets. The DVD tutorials use a music soundtrack, without voice over. English labels will guide you, which makes it especially targeted at an international public.

All the examples have been painted with Gimp-painter 2.6 . But you can follow the tutorials with your own 2D application too; like Krita / Mypaint / Photoshop ... etc. The lessons are not centered around the software ; but about the Technic. 

The videos are in 1440x896 and play well in VLC, and are distributed freely under the Creative Commons Attribution license. 

So why to buy it ? 

Because if you don't, open project like this one will stop. The Blender Open Movie Workshop DVD series is a Blender Institute product and compare to other company who sells tutorial ; this buisness model rocks. Think about it ; By purchasing this DVD you support the Blender Foundation projects and the free culture.


Buy the Dvd 'Chaos and Evolutions' on Blender e-shop

Hi!
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for all you taught me with this DVD.
Currently I'm helping to spread the word about it, I wrote a short review of it on my deviantart page:

I might also add that you are missed on Deviantart, you appear to be an inactive member :(


Thanks again for everything. Keep up the good works of inspiring people like me!

Bonjour...
Un grand merci pour ce DVD... c' est tout ce que j' attendais sans le savoir... Et j' ai été vraiment comblé.
C' est une véritable réussite et un superbe tutorial.
Vraiment merci pour ça...
Et pour ce qui est du talent, je dis "chapeau bas"...
PS: je sais que les commentaires sont en grandes majorités en anglais mais étant une quiche dans la langue de Shakespeare, je m' en tiendrais donc à ma langue maternelle... ;)
Encore merci et bonne continuation.

Salut David,
Je suis à deux doigt d'acheter ton DD qui a l'air vraiment génial si l'on tiens compte du travail que tu produit. Seulement je me demande si tu n'est pas sur le point d'en sortir un nouveau, mieux peut-être, étant donné que celui-ci a a plus d'un an.
Encore bravo

@Guillaume : Hello, je n'en sors aucun dans l'immediat, et j'ai plutôt des projets de tutoriel gratuit sur le net, mais pour un niveau plus avancé et avec des fonctionalité precise à Mypaint ou Krita. Pour C&E il couvre bien les bases et le niveau intermediaire , et reste assez généraliste. Merci pour l'achat , ça va aider l'équipe de film Mango aussi ce soutient ( je crois que c'est la fin du stock de DVD de C&E à la Blender Institute et pas sure qu'il soit réedité :) si j'en refait un, ce sera pour fin 2012 :D )

Merci pour ta réponse. Je pense que je vais prendre C&E et également Blend&Paint. J'ai déjà de bonnes bases sur blender mais je n'ai jamais poussé un projet jusqu'au bout par lassitude ou manque de temps.

Je suis épaté de voir que tu réussi à produire des images de styles très différents, parfois "glossy" comme je dit, comme collar-of-magic-pearls, d'autres dans un style BD ou d'autre encore touchant plus la sensibilité des petites têtes blondes.
Bonne continuation

I have a question about this DVD -- the character designs of Lia Turtle and Cendrea, are they for a film or game or something? What are the concepts behind them? Is there a story? I just love the designs of these two characters and would love to see more of them!

@Brett McCoy : Hey Brett , thanks, thats nice. Lia and Cendrea were just fictive character design I wrote for this DVD , they don't have any story or background. But they are CC-By if someone want to solve this ^ ^

Hey Deevad --

I am producing a short animation (done with MyPaint and TVPaint), based on the invasions of Ireland and the Tuatha de Danann, and I am thinking it would be fun to have Cendrea make a cameo in it somewhere, like a forest spirit sadly watching the great battles of the invaders or something.

I just here to say thanks. I'm casual and just started work digitaly.
Didnt know what can i see with horizontal reflection, something i coudnt do with a paper(like Omg! that arm doesn't fit).Also for basics like how to organize creation stages of art and all the tools for Gimp you shared. Only problem with wy drawing are details, it was mush easier with pencil/paper. How long its take to get use to tablet?
Beside of this i cant wait when i will end my first painting.

Sorry for my english, Cheers.

Hello Deevad!!
Just wanted to write a quick note and say thanks for making this training, I learned more about anatomy in your alchemy video than I have been able to learn from any other source. I also think Alchemy (and now krita) help a lot with the mirror effect for practicing anatomy. I recently got my wacom tablet and your videos have helped me transition from traditional to digital art a lot!

I draw as a hobby and start work in a month. So as soon as I start getting those paychecks I am buying your chaos and evolution DVD so I can study in more detail and support your awesome work!

@victorescu : Hey ! Thanks for the feedback ; if you want to watch the full DVD , you can do it for free ; all the vidéo are under the categorie 'tutorial' of the main top menu :)

Have a good watching and thanks if you also want to purchase a DVD for making revenue to the Blender Foundation ( by the way, i'm almost sure C&E is soon 'out of stock' and it will not be printed again )
