Con­sider the frame tem­plate

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - In Depth Art With Personality -

Know­ing what type of card it is, I can take a look at the fram­ing el­e­ment I’ll be work­ing with. From a game de­sign stand­point, the frame as­sist in separat­ing the cards in play on the ta­ble, help­ing play­ers to tell at a glance what kind of card it is. For the artist, how­ever, this fram­ing el­e­ment is im­por­tant for de­ter­min­ing how to set up the com­po­si­tion of your im­age.

Pro­duce sketches

I be­gin cre­at­ing sketches that sat­isfy the brief, as well as work within the bor­ders of the frame. I con­cen­trate on a sim­ple com­po­si­tion that show­cases the char­ac­ter’s per­son­al­ity. I know that I won’t have much back­ground to play with, and I need to con­vey the night­club en­vi­ron­ment, so I de­cide to de­pict the char­ac­ter as if he’s in the mid­dle of a dance floor.
