the thumb­nail is king

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - In Depth 3d Tools -

When work­ing with el­e­ments like 3D mod­els and masks, it’s easy to get bogged down. The se­cret to stay­ing on course is my thumb­nail sketch. Ev­ery 15 min­utes or so I com­pare my cur­rent progress against the ini­tial thumb­nail. Do they look sim­i­lar? Good. If not, it means I’m drift­ing off course and need to be care­ful about my de­sign. The thumb­nail isn’t just the first step – it’s your road map, blue­print, and in­struc­tion man­ual. Don’t ig­nore it!
