For the last chapter of this course, let's go over a recap of everything we've learned. In this course, you learned what it takes to create a surreal digital painting of your own. Chapter two tackled everything you needed to know about your tools and resources. Including the importance of breaking old habits, by experimenting with different document sizes for your compositions. We then moved on, to concept development in chapter three. Where you got to see the main idea take form, as we focused on creating a painting with a powerful meaning behind it. After some experimentation with composition and lighting. Chapter four revealed the final digital painting process. As we ventured onto highlights and the remaining details. Art that is rich in surrealism is not your normal art.
