Light and de­tail

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

Things are look­ing much cleaner now as I add more de­tail. I’m al­ways drawn to faces when­ever I look at char­ac­ters, so I fo­cus on that area early on. I want the fig­ure to be brightly lit but I still want light­ing con­trast within her. The light­ing will be­come brighter, but for now I’m adding a stronger light source un­der her face that will hit her jaw­line, and catch her nose and eye sock­ets.

The begin­nings of gold

Now I add in some of the gold. I’m not 100 per cent de­cided on what I want to do with the gold at this point, so I’m ex­per­i­ment­ing un­til I find some­thing that sticks. I know that I want the gold to weave around the im­age some­how, and for now I’m just keep­ing the gold as a flat colour un­til I’ve de­cided. I’ll come back and add the tex­ture later.
