A more ef­fec­tive character

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

After my changes, my re­vised character (wear­ing a shirt and tie) has be­come more com­pact. Pre­vi­ously, a hat gave him longish lines, but after the re­design it’s more har­mo­nious and charis­matic; the Mickey Mouse ears fits in bet­ter with his com­pan­ions. It also gives him more per­son­al­ity.

Back­ground colour

At this point, I choose the gen­eral back­ground colour, which en­ables me to start to de­fine the tone of the light that will af­fect all the colours of the char­ac­ters and other el­e­ments. This pro­vides an over­all at­mos­phere, giv­ing a dra­matic look to the scene and es­tab­lish­ing some sense of con­text for it.
