Gen­eral colour and har­mony

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

I be­gin by rough­ing in the scene as a whole to test the colour scheme and the har­mony be­tween the char­ac­ters. I al­ways start with a medium colour and then the shad­ows and high­lights. I be­gin with solid colours only and then add de­tails and other shades of th­ese colours. Then I step back to as­sess how har­mo­nious and pleas­ing the scene is.

More de­tails and depth

After this first colour test I be­gin to de­tail and bet­ter de­fine a par­tic­u­lar el­e­ment, en­hanc­ing its colours. I keep check­ing that the scene con­tin­ues to look har­mo­nious as I add more high­lights and shad­ows in or­der to give more depth and vol­ume to the cho­sen el­e­ment.
