Re­search is an es­sen­tial step

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - In Depth | Daylight Scene -

For prepa­ra­tion, I al­ways make or find ref­er­ence pho­tos and try to find out how things work. With­out that and with­out the ex­pe­ri­ence of hav­ing seen the colour, light, shape, ma­te­rial or fig­ure pose be­fore, you give your­self a hard time mak­ing your idea ap­pear be­liev­able. For a con­cept artist, re­search, ref­er­ence gath­er­ing and idea it­er­a­tion is as much a part of the learn­ing curve as put­ting your paint­ing skills into prac­tice.
