1 Find shape and struc­ture

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

I start light and build up my draw­ing from boxes and wire­frames. You can break hard shapes such as horns, antlers and tusks into pla­nar views. The pla­nar view helps find the per­spec­tive in shapes that might not be boxy. You can find the ‘planes’ and place them in space.

I like to sketch in struc­ture first. I’m al­ways build­ing an­i­mals from the in­side out, and wire­frames and boxes help me see in per­spec­tive. Adding con­tour lines along the forms can help you see where the forms are turn­ing in space.
