Be­gin ren­der­ing

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

I be­gin ren­der­ing the face. The colours are fairly ar­bi­trary – they’ll change many times be­fore I’m fin­ished. Some­times I do all my ren­der­ing in greyscale be­fore adding colour, but that’s pretty bor­ing. Build­ing up colours grad­u­ally gen­er­ates more depth and gives the im­age more life. I was go­ing to have a lot of in­sects crawl­ing from her mouth, but aban­don this for clar­ity.

Adding fa­cial de­tails

I be­gin to add more de­tails – in ret­ro­spect, prob­a­bly too early – to cloth and face. A colour scheme that I like is be­gin­ning to emerge. Af­ter some ex­per­i­men­ta­tion with the layer styles I come across a dark blue/metal­lic type of ef­fect I like and stick with it for the moths. Some­how I man­aged to end up with over 200 lay­ers by this point. I never claimed to be very or­gan­ised!
