2 Colour and setting
This painting is a nextstep image. A wild boar is a template, incorporating colour and a forest setting, photographed on location and supplied by the client. Two avenues are being explored: stag and boar. A simple model is built by the Framestore art department, which I use a render of as a base for this painting, though I paint the head from scratch. There’s a request for multiple eyes, at this point four, with a splash of iridescent pigment. The technique for this image is a blend of photography, 3D model render and Photoshop painting. I include some atmosphere, something that helps to sell an idea to a client. I want to begin showing what it might look like in the film.
