A read­able sil­hou­ette

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

My favourite tech­nique for gen­er­at­ing many con­cepts quickly is to use sil­hou­ettes. I don’t use this for the im­por­tant char­ac­ters such as he­roes be­cause I think pure line draw­ing is more ap­pro­pri­ate, but for sec­ondary char­ac­ters it’s a great tech­nique. I use pho­to­bash­ing for my rough de­signs and then tweak them to achieve clean sil­hou­ettes. Once I’m sat­is­fied they read well and are in­ter­est­ing as an en­sem­ble, I start re­solv­ing the de­signs with line on top.
