5 Pro­duce rough sketches or thumb­nails

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

I’ve found that the eas­i­est way to throw my raw ideas down on to pa­per is by cre­at­ing quick sketches or thumb­nails. Whether you do con­cept work, il­lus­tra­tions or sto­ry­board­ing, the ap­proach is the same. I al­ways start with sim­ple sketches, and pre­fer work­ing with line – just cre­at­ing hints of what I have in mind. I don’t go into de­tails be­cause they be­long in the paint­ing process, which fol­lows. Imag­ine them as small copies of what you’ll have in your fi­nal paint­ing. The Painter brush I use is called Real 6B Soft Pen­cil Grainy – it in­ter­acts with the pa­per tex­ture, which gives the lines a more nat­u­ral look. I also ac­ti­vate the Tilt func­tion so that’s it eas­ier for me to switch be­tween thin and wide lines, just like a tra­di­tional pen­cil would do.
