Putting Rorschach to the test

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - In Depth Custom Brushes -

I cre­ate some ran­dom marks on the can­vas. No mat­ter what comes out, I try to see some­thing in­ter­est­ing in the re­sult­ing shapes. Then I dou­ble them, flip them, ro­tate them, and ma­nip­u­late them with the Trans­form and Warp tools to gen­er­ate some­thing that look like ei­ther a hel­met or a mask that my character would wear. This ap­proach also works well when quickly con­cept­ing sci-fi ve­hi­cles, ships or robots. Once ev­ery­thing is in place, I of­ten fin­ish ei­ther paint­ing my fig­ure or us­ing the rec­tan­gu­lar Lasso tool to work out my shape into some­thing that’s more read­able. Fi­nally, I make a mask out of my shapes and start paint­ing inside and out­side of them to in­cor­po­rate them into my paint­ing.
