Shine Like a Diamond!–Sports was a 2 Day Workshop held in 2018 that focused on creating hyper-realistic sports composites using the techniques of 11-time Diamond Winner Richard Sturdevant. Enjoy step-by-step hands-on instruction from concept, staging with a Live Sports Model, lighting, and extraction to illustration, painting, and finishing techniques.

When it comes to sports composition, Richard’s techniques are proven to win over your clients. This class is designed to teach you how to further your skills, win over your community, but, most of all, revisit your love of your art.


This is going to be a very intense class that will benefit you for years to come. We are creating art and Richard will show you how by:

  • Conception

  • Light creation and lighting to fit the scene
  • Using the right angle of view
  • Extraction
  • Composition
  • Color theory and Harmony
  • Illustration techniques that can be used on any image
  • Plug-in techniques
  • PS Painting techniques
  • Proven finishing techniques and presentation
  • You will receive all class materials, tools, brushes, backgrounds, elements, and source images
  • Last but not least the whole workshop will be filmed and screen captured so you can relive the class as many times as you like. This will only be available to those in the workshop.
