3 Always back up you concepts with photo reference
Photo references are the foundation that will generate realism in all your works. Even sci-fi video games will feature a significant amount of realworld designs. References increase the soundness of your artistic choices and show that you’ve done your visual research properly. They also serve as great visual support when your deadline is tight and you have to do something loose. Provide the reference materials along with your speed painting: this will make the 3D artists’ lives much easier.
