I will teach you to be a better artist.

That's the promise I made to students years ago when I launched Art Camp in 2013. Since then hundreds of artists have taken the courses and become better artists.

I'm thrilled to continue offering the 70+ hours of video content from the past few years, as well as offer a brand new course starting on May 18, Art Camp 3: Landscapes.

Over the last 6 years of painting landscapes professionally, I've constantly been asked, “how do you paint clouds?”, “how do you get depth in landscapes?”, “how do you come up with nice lighting?”, and countless others.

And now, at long last, I'm ready to start answering those questions. I'm ready to teach everything I know about landscapes. It's going to be the most comprehensive course on landscapes that I could possibly make. You don't want to miss this.

Live course begins May 18, 2016

Art Camp: Environment Concept Design

with Titus Lunter

Master studies

Learn how to steal their secrets and do focused master studies.

Seeing & Drawing

Learn to train your eye with basic drawing and observation techniques. These are the basics that everything else is built on.

The Fundamentals of Landscapes

The ultimate primer on landscapes. Avoid the most common mistakes and learn the basic knowledge that will easily set your landscapes apart.

You & Fundamentals

Get an insight to how brains work and how it will help you stay focussed, get over art blocks and tackle difficult learning goals. The road to improving starts with yourself!

Sketching from Imagination

Too many people lose sight of how to apply the knowledge they learn. That's why we're starting with imaginative painting so early. Education without application is useless.

Keeping a Sketchbook

Sketchbooks are the birthplaces of paintings. Learn to develop the habit of continual sketching and observation.

Studying the Masters

In Art Camp tradition, we're going to be looking back at the old masters. This time we'll be looking at and studying their work through the lens of landscapes, and digging into the specifics of why they were great.

Thumbnails & Ideation

An in depth approach to the art of making thumbnails and how to come up with ideas for them.

Still Life

One of the best ways to practice technique and learn to render objects. They have the advantage of never moving and giving you unlimited time to refine and study.

Practical Perspective

That thing everyone hates. I'm going to break down perspective to the basics of what you need to learn and explain it as clearly as possible. Don't be afraid. It's not that scary.

Forms of Nature 1: Ground, Rocks, and Trees

The building blocks of most landscapes. Study their forms and learn them like you never have before. Think of this like the anatomy of landscapes.


One of the most important weapons in your aresenal! Get ready for some serious theory on this one.

Self Portraits

Learning to paint a face requires painting a lot of faces. One of the easiest ways to do this is self-portraits, as you never have to worry about finding a willing model.

Drawing Material Experiments

Learn to play around with new materials in drawing. We'll cover charcoal, graphite, pastel, ink, and perhaps others in an attempt to see what these mediums can offer us.

Forms of Nature 2: Skies, Clouds, and Mountains

If last week was studying the midground, this week we're tackling the background. We'll continue to strive to understand form so we can avoid flat, boring landscapes.

Architecture Design

Most people struggle with this one so I'll show you that its actually not that bad. Breaking it down to the basic shapes and moving on from there.

Plein Air

Getting outside to work is a wonderful way to study both people as well as the natural world. Let's get into the habit of leaving our studios.

Painting Materials & Techniques

Most people paint digitally because they think traditional painting is expensive and/or complicated. But I'll show you how to do it. I promise you'll love it.

Seeing Color & Light

See and understand the essential lighting schemes in landscapes and learn how to replicate them.

Thumbnailing, Sketching, and Basic Colors

How to go from thumbnail to final is often a tricky process so we will take it step by step and talk about why it's important to do this properly.

Learning from Photos

Photos are easily available but can cause extremely harmful habits if used incorrectly. I'll show you how to learn from photo reference without harming your skills.

Digital Painting Basics

I'm going to show you every trick, tool, and method I know for working digitally. Specifically designed for working in Photoshop.

Thumbnailing for Landscapes

Beginning with observational thumbnails before shifting into more imaginative work, we'll closely analytze the unique compositional challenges and advantages in landscape painting.


I know you were wondering when this would come into play. I will show you the benefits of it and the downsides. Buzzwords: Rapid iteration, kill your darlings.

Materials & Edges

There are many different types of materials in the world—things like cloth, silk, metal, rock, flesh, etc.—and all of them require slightly different treatments. We'll learn how light affects them differently and how to use edges to convey texture.

Light & Form

Learning to draw & paint basic forms is a cornerstone of learning any new medium. These fundamental exercises will push our facility to the next level.

Creating Light

Lighting is one of the best ways to make a landscape interesting. Learn to create amazing, interesting, unique lighting in your work.

The Awkward In-between

What happens between the color sketch and final noodling stages and how do you get that 'delicious' concept feel in your images.

Drawing & Painting Figures

The human form is one of the most beautiful and challenging subjects that we can paint. This week we'll go over useful exercises, approaches, and resources for drawing & painting figures.

Narrative & Storytelling

Learn to communicate compelling narrative in visual and written form. Let's dive into the art of storytelling.

Climate & Weather

From a sweeping tundra to a lush rainforest, and from a barren desert to a snow capped mountain, we'll look at the best ways to capture these unique vistas.

Finalizing Images and Reflection

In the concept world an image is never done. Even after its done. I'll show you the finalization of an image and what can happen to it after you give it to the team.

Concept Art & Ideation

We'll go over the basics of developing original concepts in our work. Even if you want to pursue another field, the ability to come up with unique concepts and ideas is critical in art.

Sequential Images

Storyboards, comics, and other sequential art. Learn the freedoms and challenges that come with working with multiple images.

Narrative & Emotions in Landscapes

I mistakenly thought (for years) that landscapes couldn't possibly have emotion—and how wrong I was! This week we'll see how we can create a story or a feeling with "just" a landscape.

More Thumbnails and Basic Concept Art Knowledge

Prop density, detail aspect ratio, AI movement, camera restrictions and much more in depth game design restrictions. The more you know!

Composition & Thumbnailing

This week we will learn how to create striking, dynamic compositions as we begin to develop a finished portfolio piece to wrap up the course.

Photography & Using Reference

Get out your cameras. I'm going to show you how to use photography to improve your other artistic skills. Also we'll be talking about shooting good reference and using it effectively.

Finished painting: Painterly Approach

An extended demo of a fully finished landscape piece, showing off a painterly approach and finish. For this and the remaining weeks, all work will be shown. From first marks to the last, you'll see exactly how it's done.

Getting Faster and Making Less Mistakes

Making mistakes costs time so let's review properly how to avoid this. Bonus round: Dealing with stress and prioritizing.

Color & Light

Using the portfolio piece we are creating as a base, we will explore the world of color & light and learn how to use them to convey emotion.


Learn to think entirely differently. Working in three dimensions will radically change how you approach your drawings. Trust me—you don't want to miss this.

Finished painting: Photobashing

Another finished painting, this time utilizing photos both as reference as well as placed directly into the piece to speed up production time.

Interior Composition

Yes, there is a difference, stick around if you want to know more.


Many of us struggle with finishing work. We can start a piece, but have no idea how to finish our work. This week I'll go over the techniques and approach I take in finishing my work.

Developing Style & Creating Work You Love

How to find your "style" and do work that you love.

Finished painting: Incorporating 3D

See how to use 3d tools to make better work, faster. See how to make these tools work for you, and not the other way around.

Automated process

It's time I summarize everything and make sure you are all good to go. I will also show finalization of the interior image.

“So what's my experience going to be?”

Every week you'll login to the site here and watch a 2 hour demo video showing how to do the assignment, what you should be thinking about, and how to get the most out of the assignments.

Then you'll start to dive into that week's assignments, whatever they might be. If you get stuck, want to take a break, or have something to share, you can hop in the brand new group chat with all of the other Art Camp students.

100% no-questions-asked money-back guarantee

No, really, for any reason. I promise. I am extremely confident in the quality of these courses and never want someone's money unless they loved the experience and thought it was worth every dime.

An amazing, supportive artistic community

I have been blessed to witness a thriving community blossom around Art Camp. And now, thanks to a brand new group chat application, we're going to interact like never before.

Structured education that fits your needs

There's a structure to the course, but it's designed to be flexible. Everyone's in a different situation, so there are tiered assignments for every kind of student.

Hours upon hours of awesome videos

Each course ends up with over 24 hours of demo material. And that's not including any bonuses, critique videos, or Q&A sessions. It'll keep you busy. I promise. Did I mention you can also download everything DRM-free?

Peer-to-peer feedback

We've set up the Art Camp community on a new Discord-powered private channel. No matter what time zone you're in, you'll find peers to share your work and talk shop with. Get and give critique easily and instantly. You can even leave the voice-chat on in the background while you do your studies for a bit of comraderie.

A clear path to improvement

Nearly every artist struggles with confusion about what they should work on. Art Camp removes that confusion. You know precisely what you should work on to improve your skills.


“I'm a complete n00b! What skill level should I be at for Art Camp?”

You should be wherever you're at! Art Camp 1 & are perfect for complete beginners or seasoned professionals. No matter how new or experienced someone is, these fundamental exercises are vital to improving.

Art Camp 3 & Titus's ECD course are geared at more intermediate students. It helps to have a decent grasp of painting before starting these.

“Will you give me critique?”

Unfortunately not. To make Art Camp accessible to more students, I have to keep the price low. And when the price is low... suddenly there are tons of students! So if the course is going to stay accessible, it's going to be impossible for me to give individual critiques to everyone.

That said, there is an amazing group of fellow students just like you eager to give/get critiques. So let's all learn together.

“What medium do I need to use? Is ___ ok to use?”

Pretty much anything! Art Camp 1 are fundamental exercises that can be done in any medium. Art Camp 2 is similar but there are a few weeks with more specific media experiments.

Art Camp 3 & ECD are focused on primarily digital work (with Photoshop), so to get the most out of those courses, we recommend having access to a computer & tablet.

“How long do I have to register?”

You can register anytime you want! The courses can be taken at your own pace, on your own schedule, whenever you want.

Art Camp 3 will go live on May 18 and run through August 10. There will be a lot of students going through the Art Camp 1/2/ECD materials at the same time, as well, in case you wanted to particpate with others.

“I'm pretty busy—how much time will this course take?”

As much as you want it to. The more time you spend on it, the more you're going to get out of the course. I generally suggest having at least two hours a week to watch the demo video as well as four hours of additional time to do the assigned work.

On the other end of the spectrum, there's enough assigned work in some weeks that you could easily fill 40 hours.

“My question isn't here! How dare you! How do I contact you?”

Oh no! Well in that case, the easiest and fastest way is to hop on twitter and shoot a tweet @ArtCampOfficial.

Not on Twitter? No problem, you can always email help@artcamp.com with whatever question you have and I'll do my best to get back to you as quickly as I can!

“Can I watch the videos after the course is over?”


I am a strong believer that if you pay for something, you should own it. I hate paying for something, and then losing access to it later on. So these videos are yours. You can stream them or download them anytime you want, forever.


“Which course should I sign up for?”

When in doubt, Art Camp 1 is always good. It's the best for fundamental exercises. Art Camp 2 is good if you want a similar experience, but with a bit more experimentation and boundary-pushing.

Titus's ECD is incredible for concept artists (especially those with an environment focus). Art Camp 3 is perfect if you struggle with painting "backgrounds" or if you want to take your landscape skills to the next level.

Are you ready to become a better artist?

Art Camp is here with the framework, community, and resources to get you there. No matter where you're at right now or where you're going, these courses will make the journey clearer.

Let's learn together.
