Har­mo­nious back­ground colours

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

The back­ground must be the graph­i­cal support of my com­po­si­tion, but also in­te­grate with my character and other fore­ground el­e­ments. I se­lect her most sat­u­rated colours to in­te­grate them be­hind her. The red and blue struc­ture the com­po­si­tion and are bal­anced by the black leather and the grey of her trousers. I add some colours for greater visual in­ter­est.

Pol­ish­ing de­tails on the character

I con­tinue to im­prove the vol­ume and de­tails on and around her face. I also change the di­rec­tion of her gaze, so that she’s look­ing where she’s go­ing! Her dread­locks don’t re­act as nor­mal hair so I imag­ine the weight of them and place them ac­cord­ingly. I also add more re­flec­tions of her skin on the mask.
