Find­ing an idea

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

The coloured im­age is the first one I send to the ImagineFX team. Look­ing back, I re­alise my first sketch wouldn’t have worked at all. I think it’s a mix­ture of pres­sure and warm­ing up to the sub­ject. Then I do three thumb­nails that are a closer match to the as­sign­ment. The bot­tom-left im­age is cho­sen, so I con­tinue with this idea.

Work­ing with the lay­out

I change the sword to a flute at the re­quest of the team. If you com­pare this im­age with the fi­nal one you’ll see that the pose of her arms is slightly dif­fer­ent: I need to make more space for some cover text. I ac­tu­ally pre­fer how the arms look when they’re higher up – it makes for a more dy­namic pose. But this so­lu­tion is a lot bet­ter for the cover!
