Iva Mikles (http://ivka.me/) worked as an Art Director and Concept Artist at LEGO System A/S, Denmark, for over 7 years with a focus on storytelling and visual branding. Iva is now working in the field of storytelling and character design. This practical workshop is a hands-on exploration of using color and light to create compelling concept art and environment design for entertainment art projects. Although no previous experience is necessary, the workshop can serve as a part-2 for those who attended Loish's workshop at SAE Institute Zürich—further exploring the process of what happens after initial character design work has been completed and communication with the team and Art Director evolves.
• Color choices that create a variety of emotional beats as part of the storytelling
• Designing atmosphere for a sense of environment and mood
