Ad­just­ing the mock-up

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

I send the sketches to the Imag­ineFX team. The one that gets the green light is ad­justed ac­cord­ing to their in­struc­tions: it’s re­sized, some el­e­ments are changed in the com­po­si­tion, or even re­designed com­pletely. I then do a speed paint­ing, a mock-up ver­sion to gain a bet­ter idea of what the fi­nal im­age will look like.

Value stud­ies and light­ing

From this mock-up, I cre­ate a value study. This re­veals the bal­ance of light and dark on the ac­tual colours that I’ll use for the im­age. As you can see, even af­ter the im­age is ap­proved, the colour of the pin-up’s hair is al­tered. I then ren­der ev­ery­thing I can to max­imise all the de­tails on the im­age, which will be the base for my colour paint­ing process.
