Block out the com­po­si­tion

I scan in and place my paper sketch as the up­per­most layer, set­ting it to Mul­ti­ply mode. This en­ables me to fol­low the orig­i­nal con­cept closely, and means that I won’t have to recre­ate ev­ery el­e­ment from scratch. How­ever, I’ll use sev­eral ma­te­ri­als to es­tab­lish scale, and use ref­er­ences for de­tails and re­al­ism. I plan to have a statue in the fore­ground, and also in­tro­duce ar­chi­tec­tural el­e­ments such as viaducts and large domes in the back­ground, so I look in my per­sonal photo data­base for these kind of el­e­ments. While re­fer­ring to my orig­i­nal sketch I’m aware that I need to main­tain a con­sis­tent per­spec­tive when plac­ing my cho­sen el­e­ments in the com­po­si­tion.
