Ex­plor­ing dif­fer­ent so­lu­tions

I sketch a cou­ple of op­tions. The first one fo­cuses on the char­ac­ters, their poses and their ex­pres­sions – there’s just a hint of the en­vi­ron­ment. The sec­ond one opens up the scene. The char­ac­ters are smaller in the com­po­si­tion and there’s more space to show off the cathe­dral space. This sec­ond ap­proach would en­able me to en­hance the solem­nity of the im­age.

Sketch­ing per­spec­tive

When I work­ing on a com­plex en­vi­ron­ment I usu­ally cre­ate a large file and work in the cen­tral area. I choose a per­spec­tive with two van­ish­ing points, and this means I’ll be able to show off the stained glass win­dows and play with the coloured light they cast. I roughly sketch my char­ac­ters and ar­chi­tec­tural el­e­ments.
