Set up files, sketch and plan con­cept

3D World - - TUTORIALS -

The doc­u­ment is cre­ated por­trait at 5,000px x 6,470px, at 300dpi. Sketches were cre­ated to es­tab­lish the main el­e­ments, and a few thumb­nail screen­shots of moun­tain re­gions were used to paint in some val­ues. When cre­at­ing my own con­tent, I find that al­low­ing my­self to drive the im­age, in­stead of fol­low­ing the pho­tog­ra­phy that al­ready ex­ists, keeps things chal­leng­ing enough to keep my in­ter­est. Af­ter get­ting thumb­nails down, I tried a larger line sketch just to stay con­nected to my orig­i­nal vi­sion. I then use this layer as a checker us­ing an In­vert ad­just­ment layer. Alt-click­ing be­tween both lay­ers clips this onto the line work. This will help to view this in black or white.
