Light and colour plan­ning

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

Once I’ve locked down the com­po­si­tion and de­sign, I ren­der a quick rough to plan the tones and colours. If you do more than one colour rough, you can com­pare and de­cide which one works bet­ter. The idea of a rough is to quickly get the over­all look, so never zoom in and paint de­tails; in­stead, zoom out to view the en­tire im­age and es­tab­lish the key colours. I never start with a white back­ground, but fill in a dom­i­nant colour and paint other colours on top of this base un­til I’m sat­is­fied with the colour pal­ette.
