14 Bring on the un­ex­pected

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

Let’s play one of my favourite Pho­to­shop games. Im­port an im­age into the monster or set­ting you’re try­ing to make hor­rific. Now re­peat the steps out­lined in tip 13 and be­gin mov­ing the slid­ers around. The re­sult­ing pat­terns al­ways give me some­thing use­ful. By be­ing some­thing I don’t want, they help me see what it is I’m af­ter. Of­ten I pro­duce un­usual shapes by blend­ing im­ages of leaves and metal with my draw­ings. This trick is one of the best I know for gen­er­at­ing happy ac­ci­dents.

Films are like veins of min­er­als. Tap them for ideas and in­spi­ra­tion, es­pe­cially those with rich vi­su­als
