Con­vert­ing to sil­hou­ettes

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

I re­draw all the body sec­tions as solid black sil­hou­ettes, or sils. Then I re­pose them quickly and free-trans­form to dis­tort them to­ward in­sect-like pro­por­tions, while main­tain­ing fa­mil­iar hu­man shapes. Then I re­fine the sils to cre­ate fully de­tailed edges. I usu­ally start an ob­ject with sil­hou­ettes, then draw lighter val­ues over the black to cre­ate sur­face form and tex­ture.
