Channels And Advanced Shape Tools
gum-road video explaining using channels in Photoshop and how it can be used to create environments more efficiently along with shape tools

this is the last video for awhile since I will be taking some time to figure out my own 3d process , but I will try to make some more free random content for you guys during the summer as a way to keep in touch . 

if you are interested in the tutorial you can find the link here

A man of habit , easy going and simple lifestyle . Draw , Dance , Sports , and Game. I live in California (currently BAY AREA) and I work as a concept artist :)

Try always share what little knowledge I have

anything else just ask

All Work is Property to k04sk , Please do not use , or re-use any of my work without my written consent , thanks! : )

(btw its weird that I have to write that above statement now a days lol )
one the first concept artist I ever knew about when I was in school passed away due to an ongoing illness of ALS. 

really sad to see an awesome guy go!

I know as artist we get tired and feel like we cant do things sometimes , but this guy even with als found ways to still do what he loved and for that I have mad respect for him. So everyone that is trying to make it in art , you owe to yourself to give your 100% to your craft . Because at this moment I'm sure he would give anything to draw one more day. So do not waste your talents guys :)


GUMROAD TUTORIALS....Just some affordable tut action :)

Hello sir 0:
I would like to ask you, what programs are you using to make your digital art? (I'm going to college next year and getting a major in animation and digital media and stuff like that, and would like a heads up on what I might be using) Please and Thank you!

Would you mind telling me what are the things you did to obtain art awesomeness? Is it best to just do master studies, photo studies, film studies, etc?
k04sk Featured By Owner May 21, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
umm well honeslty it was like all of those things you mentioned , master studios , photo studies , film studies , learning those things then trying to apply what I learned to my own design and ideas. combine that with 2-3 of 18 hour days of painting drawing etc etc and walaaaa lolol
theholyand2owls Featured By Owner May 23, 2015   Digital Artist
Wow, you draw for 18 hours per day? D:
k04sk Featured By Owner May 24, 2015  Professional Digital Artist
well , not necessarily , drawing for 18 "straight" hours a day . but my daily routine was waking up at 9:00am to go school , and during the times of 9:00am - midnight was drawing , painting , watching videos , looking at reference , exploring , trying new things , reading books , etc etc .

so thats about 15 hours , in which after school closed we would either go to a friends house to draw and game , or go to dennys . so its about 18 hours of just surrounding ourselves with all things art and design . I would usually only go out once a week to dance , but thats only because I wouldn't have to go until 11:00pm . So if anything its more so just enveloping yourself around art design as much as you can :D
