Class Experience

Students well then how do use a pen to create smooth shading and blending effects. 
Chris Chien is a professional theme park designer who has spent the last 10 years contributing to projects such as Universal Studios, Sesame Street Land, SeaWorld, Kennedy Space Center, Ferrari World and many more. As a professional concept designer and illustrator, he has created designs for many theme parks all around the world!

Chris primarily works in Photoshop, but his background in traditional mediums such as charcoal, watercolor and oil painting help gives his digital art an authentically “hand-painted” look. In addition, Chris often uses 3D software such as SketchUp, Unreal Engine and Planet Coaster to create immersive worlds.

In 2010, Chris graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with a Bachelors in Industrial Design and a minor in Theater. During his time in college, Chris designed and built many award-winning Carnival Booths, which sparked his interest in themed entertainment. Afterward graduating from Carnegie Mellon, he moved to Los Angeles to study at the prestigious Concept Design Academy, studying under Hollywood’s finest professionals from Disney, Pixar, Dreamworks, Lucasfilms, Marvel, and Blizzard.
Chris’ passion for themed entertainment and storytelling comes from exploring different countries. With his desire to learn and explore, he backpacked around the world, visiting the continents of Europe, Asia and South America - seeing castles, jungles, and temples in their natural context.  Chris’ mission in themed entertainment not just to entertain, but to also provide education and inspiration to people around the globe.
​• 10 years of concept art and design experience
​• 8 years of professional teaching experience (art classes for children, teens and adults)
• Experienced in theme park design, concept art for games and movies, showset design, fabrication, and scenic painting
There will be one optional homework assignment in the class. 
This is a class where students are welcome to use traditional medium such as pen, and ink, or digital inking techniques with their iPad and Procreate. If you are using pen, I recommend bring a variety of pens and markers to see which ones you like using the most. I do recommend having at least a thin marker and a thick marker. Here are examples of the variety of inking materials you may use in the class (You don't need all of them). - Ballpoint pen - Gel pen - Felt tip pen - Brush pen - Chisel tip marker - Thick sharpie - Calligraphy pen
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
