Get your hands on Henrik's collection of custom brushes! They will help you get a nice painted feel and generally make all your digital painting more comfortable. The brushes will make it easier to follow along in the tutorial and to improve your own work.


Learn the very basics of how to start producing gorgeous concept art. We demystify what makes a great piece and how to repeat your success time and time again. We are including Henrik's very own 'List of Death', along with concepts such as successfully leading the eye.


Getting the lighting to feel right is incredibly hard. Henrik shows you a way to get comfortable with complex lighting setups in no time. No more will your paintings feel ambiguous and dull! Once the grey-scale lighting has been established, you'll learn how to turn it into vibrant colors.

3 Hours of Training

Throughout the series, you'll not only learn how to paint in Photoshop, but we are also going through how the industry works, bringing you real-world examples of how these techniques can be fully used. One of the key concepts covered over and over again is Being Deliberate; you're not just adding brush strokes and random values - it all ties into making conscious choices.


You'll learn industry proven concept art techniques which are being used by artists from all over the world. One of the key learning points is to break a big task into smaller and easy-to-solve problems. If you try to solve everything at once, you'll inevitably reach a point where you'll feel stuck and frustrated. Henrik breaks the final piece into very separate problems, such as shape-language, composition, lighting, color; finally bringing it all together into a coherent piece.

You'll also get an introduction to how Henrik uses Photoshop, also providing you with some amazing custom brushes; this will make your life a lot easier as a concept artist.
