Es­tab­lish the fun­da­men­tals of the com­po­si­tion

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - In Depth Concept Artwork -

I start most paint­ings and draw­ings by es­tab­lish­ing an ini­tial hori­zon line and cam­era po­si­tion. Here, I use a pre-built per­spec­tive grid that I made al­most 10 years ago in 3ds Max. Hav­ing this grid saves me about 10 min­utes of hand-plot­ting. Some­times I start with a rough line sketch or jump di­rectly into a rough paint­ing; as in this case. I don’t have a clear rule in terms of which method I pre­fer to start with. It usu­ally comes down to an al­most in­stinc­tive feel­ing be­fore I start the piece.
