From sil­hou­ette to tonal de­tails

ImagineFX - - In Depth Concept Art Approach -

When work­ing on char­ac­ter sil­hou­ettes, or­tho­graphic views are rel­a­tively straight­for­ward, but when it comes to a three-quar­ter angle or a more com­plex pose where limbs cross each other, it can be tempt­ing to re­vert to a lin­ear ap­proach. How­ever, it’s good prac­tice in the early stages to force your­self to stay with the sin­gle sil­hou­ette colour and try hard to vi­su­alise the pose in your mind as you’re draw­ing. You’ll find that with prac­tice you achieve a much greater un­der­stand­ing of these tricky poses.
