About Hakop

I'm an Artist/Designer with 10 years of professional experience in drawing and designing for video games, animation studios, and consumer products. I am a professionally trained artist with drawing and painting ability in a variety of traditional mediums (graphite, charcoal, acrylic, oil, watercolor and more). I also have teaching experience at Otis College of Art and Designs and The Art Institute in Santa Monica where I taught life drawing at the Undergraduate level.

I am also highly skilled in the latest Adobe Software such as Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. I am able to utilize Adobe Photoshop for digital painting, designing and photo retouching. I have experience in designing and illustrating in Adobe Illustrator. My list of clients include Walt Disney Studios, Yahoo Games, Hard Rock Cafe, M&M World, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame to name a few.

Adobe Photoshop, Drawing, Painting, Digital Art, Vector Art, Graphic Design, Layout, Logo Design, Illustration, Character Design and more. Over 4 years of experience as Art Director in agency environment, where I led a team of 6 designers.

Having teaching and Art Directing experience has taught me that every individual has their own way of learning. My job is to listen and understand what your needs are and put a plan together to help you attain that goal and be there to encourage and mentor you throughout the process. The best way to find out if I'm the right tutor for you is by contacting me. I'm looking forward to working together to achieve your goals.

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Drawing

I am a classically trained at drawing foundations from Otis College of Art and Design. I know the fundamentals of drawings which include perspective, proportions, lighting, shading, values and texture. I was a TA for 3 years at Otis College of Art and Design life drawing classes. I also taught life drawing at The Art Institute of Santa Monica.

Graphic Design

I have 10 years of professional experience in designing logos, marketing materials posters, promotional products and souvenirs for clients such as Walt Disney Studios, Yahoo Games, Hard Rock Cafe, Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Museum to name a few. I am highly skilled in Adobe Creative Suite. I've worked as Senior Designer and Art Director in Agency environment.

Painting

Painting is really just an extension of drawing. With solid drawing fundamentals anyone can learn how to paint anything they want. I know how to paint still life, landscape, portraiture, human figure and more. Best part is I don't teach one specific style of painting or drawing I teach you a structured process that you can utilize and build your own personal style over time. I am comfortable with oil paints, acrylic, guache and watercolor. And if you are looking for someone specific that is not on the list I am always willing to research and help you problem solve it.
