Volume 4: Final Gouache Rendering

In the final DVD, Mead illustrates the process of creating the final gouache rendering of his initial composition. He explains how to create and prepare a transfer sheet and, once the illustration is transferred, how to use the color preliminary value sketch as a guide. He then demonstrates how to use the custom color palette to add detail to the illustration one area at a time. Using this method, he adds detail from background to foreground, retracing at each stage, re-establishing detail areas, and completing the illustration.
