12 Main­tain the over­all look of your ini­tial sketch

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

Through­out your paint­ing process, make sure you reg­u­larly re­fer back to the thumb­nail of your im­age. It’ll help you keep ev­ery­thing in scale and per­spec­tive. Fur­ther­more, I re­main zoomed out of the scene while paint­ing the il­lus­tra­tion. The old masters used to as­sess their paint­ing’s pro­por­tions by step­ping away from the can­vas. I’m do­ing the same, zoom­ing out to see ev­ery­thing at once, even to the ex­tent that my paint­ing is re­duced to the size of a thumb­nail.
