3 The tonal study

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

Be­fore I con­sider my colour pal­ette, I have to de­ter­mine the grad­u­ated tones that will es­tab­lish the depth and com­po­si­tion of the im­age. I scan my pen­cil sketch and bring it into Pho­to­shop. The sketch is placed in its own layer and the blend­ing mode is set to Mul­ti­ply. I cre­ate tonal fields for the char­ac­ter and back­ground el­e­ments on sep­a­rate lay­ers. From here, I can ad­just the var­i­ous el­e­ments to achieve tonal har­mony.
