Paint and tex­ture add re­al­ism

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Artist Insight Creature Maquette -

I paint the ma­que­tte with acrylic, us­ing gloss medium in some places to add spec­u­lar­ity, or a shiny wet look. For feather tex­tures, I snip off the bris­tles of an old paint brush and at­tach them with white glue. I cut more dino sil­hou­ettes from card­board to cast shad­ows. I move the light and the cam­era to find the POV that best matches my sketch.
