4 Ren­der­ing the hands

ImagineFX - - Artist Insight Underpainting Techniques -

Af­ter lay­ing in the light/dark shapes with a large brush, I use a smaller brush to add finer shapes and forms such as wrin­kles on the skin and veins. Al­though this is time con­sum­ing – es­pe­cially in an un­der­paint­ing stage – most of this is go­ing to show through un­der the thin lay­ers of paint that I’ll even­tu­ally add on top.

Us­ing a va­ri­ety of edges to give the il­lu­sion of form and dis­tance is key at this stage. I use a com­bi­na­tion of soft, hard and lost edges here.
