Ap­ply­ing vis­ual short­cuts: tex­tures and pho­tos

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

I lay in a few photo el­e­ments to save time, such as rocks, snow and radar dishes. I do this to em­pha­sise the dif­fer­ence be­tween us­ing photo tex­tures and photo-bash­ing. Both meth­ods are used dur­ing pro­duc­tion de­pend­ing on the sit­u­a­tion. Photo-bash­ing works if the en­tire scene can be eas­ily pro­duced by us­ing pho­tos. In this case, be­cause the main el­e­ment – the shut­tle – isn’t real, it’s faster to sim­ply paint every­thing and use photo-tex­tures to add de­tails.
