Adding new tex­tures

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

I carry on work­ing character by character, bring­ing each per­son­al­ity out by adding defin­ing de­tail and cre­at­ing spot­lights that es­tab­lish the so­lid­ity of the fig­ures. I next start to add new tex­tures in the il­lus­tra­tion such as fur, tex­tile pat­terns and skin.

Re­design­ing el­e­ments

If a character doesn’t come out the way I want, I redo a sketch over the ini­tial el­e­ment I want to change, pro­vid­ing new fea­tures. The il­lus­tra­tion doesn’t need to al­ways follow a lin­ear pat­tern of be­gin­ning, mid­dle and end. I can al­ways go a step back and re­work it to reach a more bal­anced out­come.
