Pop Culture Character Painting in Photoshop - A course by Sam Gilbey

In my first course with Domestika (watch the trailer above), you can bring your favourite movie character to life by learning how to paint a realistic digital portrait from scratch in Photoshop.


Everyone has a favourite movie, and of course, a favourite character. On the course I demonstrate how I create striking images of film characters whether it's for personal projects, licensed posters or other client projects. 

I'll take you step by step through the process of how I painted my cinematic portrait of Uma Thurman as Mia Wallace from Pulp Fiction, and you'll learn how to use lots of Photoshop’s tools along the way, allowing you to experiment and ultimately find your own unique way of working.

I’ll show you how my I took my childhood passion for drawing  pop culture characters and turned it into a career over time.

You’ll see how my own art style developed from my influences  in both pop culture and fine art worlds.

You’ll be able to access the community forum to chat with other students,  upload your work and get feedback and support directly from me.

Once you sign up, you'll have access to over 5 hours of video content, as well as several downloadable resources designed to give you additional inspiration and advice.

I can't wait to see what you create!
