De­pict the cor­rect light­ing Char­ac­ter pose

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

Be­cause the main char­ac­ter and crea­ture are hid­ing in the jun­gle, I’m not keen on us­ing strong, dy­namic light­ing. In­stead I want am­bi­ent light that cre­ates an at­mos­phere of har­mony and soft­ness. The yel­low line is the main light­ing from the top right. I also cre­ate a sec­ond light from the bot­tom left (the blue line). I de­cide the ini­tial char­ac­ter’s pose is wrong – it seems too long and the up­per body doesn’t con­nect to her pelvis and legs very well. I cor­rect this anatomy prob­lem by chang­ing her body pos­ture and mak­ing the up­per body slightly shorter. The new changes make the body flow more ac­cu­rately and lead the viewer’s eye more smoothly to the crea­ture’s head.
