Sticky Notes: the new thumb­nail?

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

Thumb­nails are well es­tab­lished as a quick method to work out com­po­si­tion and the broader el­e­ments of your de­sign, the idea be­ing that the draw­ing is so small that it’s phys­i­cally im­pos­si­ble to get hung-up on de­tails. Sticky Notes are a great way to phys­i­cally con­strain your plan­ning sketches. They also have the added ad­van­tage that if you make a mis­take, you can use the sticky edge of a clean note to add a new sec­tion for your amend­ments, and just tear off the ex­cess. I of­ten scan my Sticky Note sketches, and use them as the ba­sis for a fi­nal dig­i­tal im­age. July 2016
