6 Gear­ing up for the paint­ing stage

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - In Depth Create An Environment -

Now I process my ren­der­ing, fo­cus­ing on Fi­nal Color, Al­pha, El­e­ment ID/Ma­te­rial ID, To­tal Il­lu­mi­na­tion, Am­bi­ent Oc­clu­sion, Nor­mals and a Depth pass. I’ll use my passes to achieve the best pos­si­ble start­ing point be­fore start­ing to put my brush on the can­vas. I use my Am­bi­ent oc­clu­sion Pass and put it on a Mul­ti­ply layer in Pho­to­shop, set to 25 per cent Opac­ity. The Depth pass is used to cre­ate a fog layer. I ren­der the peo­ple in my scene sep­a­rately, so I can eas­ily take them out of the paint­ing later on, if nec­es­sary.
