13 Na­ture of ma­te­ri­als

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Artist Insight Observational Art -

While I was work­ing on the sets of a film, I no­ticed the na­ture of walls: how they re­flected light, the way they age, their weight dis­tri­bu­tion, and so on. The na­ture of dif­fer­ent ma­te­ri­als means that they of­fer the artist a range of ex­cit­ing pos­si­bil­i­ties. Only when you know how a ma­te­rial be­haves un­der dif­fer­ent con­di­tions will you be able to por­tray it re­al­is­ti­cally. Ob­serve the folds on a leather jacket and those on a cot­ton shirt, or the sharp high­lights on a me­tal ball, ver­sus those on a rub­ber ball.
