Lo­cal colour pick­ing

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

I spend some time tight­en­ing up key shapes. One tip to re­mem­ber is to stick to the colours that are al­ready present in the loose sketch. I use the Mac’s Op­tion key to quickly switch to the Color Picker tool, en­abling me to quickly se­lect lo­cal colours that I’ve al­ready de­fined, and then can paint with smaller brushes to tighten up shapes.

Tight­en­ing de­tails

I con­tinue to tighten and re­fine the im­age and ex­plore how the clouds might layer in the peaks. When I say tighten, I mean zoom­ing in and paint­ing cleaner edges and find­ing the fi­nal shapes and de­tails. I only use the colours that I’ve al­ready determined.
