Sil­hou­ette and over­lap

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

While not nec­es­sar­ily used in this work­shop, these are es­sen­tial in mak­ing a pic­ture as read­able as pos­si­ble. Sil­hou­ettes de­scribe the fig­ure and their ac­tions. If the fig­ure/ob­ject doesn’t read as a sil­hou­ette then change the pose or ori­en­ta­tion. Over­lap oc­curs when one ob­ject that’s in front of an­other cre­ates the il­lu­sion of depth. See the art of Howard Pyle, NC Wyeth, Har­vey Dunn, Dean Cornwell, Frank Frazetta and Jeff Jones, among oth­ers.
