14 Be­hind the mask

ImagineFX - - Artist Insight | Kick-start Manga -

As a child I painted graf­fiti. Since then I’ve al­ways pre­ferred the idea of us­ing a mask for cer­tain ar­eas of a paint­ing and us­ing an air­brushtype tool to darken an im­age from the in­side out. This ap­proach can gen­er­ate some ef­fects that give more so­lid­ity to the im­age. Ap­ply­ing con­trast to a dark base that’s back-lit can give more vol­ume to an ob­ject or char­ac­ter.
