Take photo ref­er­ences

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

Once I’ve de­cided on a thumb­nail com­po­si­tion, I shoot photo ref­er­ence of my wife for the for­est an­gel. I light her from be­hind be­cause I want the main light source in my paint­ing to orig­i­nate from be­hind the fig­ure. I also shoot close-ups of cer­tain body parts, like the hands or head.
