Finer de­tails

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

Some­times I’ll put down tex­tures or fine de­tails mid­way through my paint­ing so I’m aware of how they’re af­fect­ing the com­po­si­tion. I can then com­pen­sate as I go. Other times, like with the beak of the bird, I’ll im­me­di­ately sub­due the con­trast so it can ex­ist with­out pulling at­ten­tion away from any­thing else.

Tex­tured brushes

I have a va­ri­ety of tex­tu­ral brushes that can be a life­saver when I’m putting in de­tail quickly. The leather jacket and trousers have been both­er­ing me the whole time, so I fi­nally add some sub­tle tex­ture to the sur­face, con­cen­trated in places where I know there would be a lot of wear, such as on the seams.
