Trans­la­tion of the orig­i­nal idea

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - In Depth Better Thumbnails -

I of­ten strug­gle with tak­ing a thumb­nail and trans­lat­ing it into a full-colour ren­der, while re­tain­ing what­ever made me like the sketch in the first place. A cer­tain level of dis­con­nect be­tween the thumb­nail and the fi­nal art is un­avoid­able. The trick is to main­tain as much of the sex­i­ness of the ini­tial sketch as pos­si­ble, while cre­at­ing a well-thought-out ren­der. Don’t be a slave to the thumb­nail, be­cause it can almost cer­tainly be im­proved. But find out what made you fall in love with it, and then try to keep that as­pect in your fi­nal im­age.
