Look at ref­er­ences

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

When paint­ing an en­vi­ron­ment with recog­nis­able el­e­ments such as man-made struc­tures, it’s im­por­tant to have plenty of ref­er­ences to hand. As artists, you should be able to iden­tify the right im­ages to help you to cre­ate your own orig­i­nal com­po­si­tions. Find­ing the right pho­tos and ref­er­ences were al­most 60 per cent of the job when I was work­ing on films as a matte pain­ter. Once you have a man­age­able collection of ref­er­ences and are able to quickly se­lect use­ful el­e­ments, your paint­ing process will be­come no­tice­ably stream­lined.
