1 Ex­per­i­men­ta­tion

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

First I ex­per­i­ment with var­i­ous an­i­mal body shapes, ei­ther from the past or present day. In­flu­ences in­clude wild boar, rhino, pre­his­toric mam­mals, stag, dogs and big cats. Us­ing Pho­to­shop, I work in black and white, in a loose sketchy-paint style. The key is to turn out a lot of ideas, spend an hour or two on each, enough to present a co­he­sive idea, with­out get­ting bogged down in un­nec­es­sary de­tail. I use cus­tom oil-paint style brushes and the Smudge tool to sketch form in a sim­ple way. A hu­man fig­ure with a horse – el­e­ments to be in­cluded in the fi­nal se­quence – is added to give scale.
