Layer man­age­ment

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

When you’re work­ing on an iPad you have to think about lay­ers in ad­vance, be­cause the can­vas size and num­ber of lay­ers de­pend on the type of iPad and its pro­cess­ing power. For ex­am­ple, on my iPad the Pro­cre­ate app en­ables me to have seven lay­ers if I’m work­ing at A4 size for­mat. If I want to merge a cou­ple of lay­ers into one, I do it by tap­ping on them with two fin­gers.

Jug­gle those shapes!

Step­ping back to look at the over­all pic­ture, it looks like the ob­jects, light and shad­ows are ar­ranged like a puz­zle of geo­met­ric shapes. Like an orches­tra con­duc­tor, our job is to man­age all of it so that there’s nei­ther too much nor too lit­tle of an el­e­ment. The best ex­am­ple is a rain­for­est, where ev­ery­thing has its own place. It’s na­ture’s way!
