Sketch my ideas and com­po­si­tions

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

I start out by doo­dling the var­i­ous con­cepts and com­po­si­tions I have in mind. These are all very rough and ugly, but they are only meant to get my ideas down on the can­vas. I can al­ready tell which ones I like and which ones I don’t, but I try not to judge them at this point and fo­cus on keep­ing the ideas flow­ing. Once I feel that I have enough sketches, I pick my four favourites to take fur­ther. July 2016

Add colour to the sketches

Nor­mally, I’d only fo­cus on the val­ues at this stage. How­ever, since the one re­quire­ment is for the paint­ing to be colour­ful, these sketches need to re­flect that. All of them have a sim­i­lar colour scheme of blues and pinks, be­cause that’s what I re­ally feel like paint­ing at the mo­ment. I want to make sure that each one of these is some­thing I would en­joy paint­ing, be­cause I don’t know which one the client will choose.
