Block­ing in the val­ues

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - In Depth Colour Tricks -

Once I’m happy with the rough sketch, I sep­a­rate the ele­ments into their own lay­ers and start block­ing in the ba­sic val­ues. I do a rough light­ing pass us­ing a Lev­els ad­just­ment layer, which I mask and paint into. This helps me to check the over­all com­po­si­tion and value struc­ture be­fore I move to colour, and I use it for ref­er­ence later on when I get into light­ing.
