work from the in­side out

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

One of the things I love about work­ing in 3D is the abil­ity to to­tally un­der­stand what you’re cre­at­ing – some­thing that’s harder to do if you’re only work­ing in 2D. As an ex­am­ple, when cre­at­ing an alien species, rather than paint­ing its fi­nal ap­pear­ance, try start­ing with the skull, add fa­cial mus­cles, and then skin and hair. This forces you to break down the sub­ject mat­ter and gain a thor­ough un­der­stand­ing of what makes up a life-form, en­abling you to take more in­formed de­ci­sions when cre­at­ing imag­i­nary or­ganic de­signs.
