Paint­ing de­tail

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

When paint­ing an en­vi­ron­ment it’s good prac­tice to sep­a­rate the im­age into pri­mary (fo­cal), sec­ondary and back­ground planes, so that the im­age has a bet­ter feel­ing of depth. I usu­ally start de­tail­ing in the fo­cal area, and here that’s the shop. So af­ter dark­en­ing the shadow on the shop I paint in ob­ject de­tail, en­hanc­ing the light sur­faces and mak­ing some colour changes based on my photo ref­er­ences.
