Nar­row­ing the field

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

I of­ten be­gin a char­ac­ter-based pro­ject by re­search­ing all as­pects of their history, try­ing to find some­thing to con­nect with. In the case of Tintin it was un­der­stand­ing that through­out his life he has been our gate­way to un­known worlds and ad­ven­tures. A per­fect can­vas. Once that ball was rolling, the ideas couldn’t be stopped. In Pho­to­shop, us­ing a cus­tomised Round brush that em­u­lates a ball-point pen, I de­velop eight black and white thumb­nails – each with its own unique story and set­ting. I can’t de­cide which one to go for, so I send them all to the ImagineFX team for ap­proval and a de­ci­sion.
