DE­SIGN LOOSELY

ImagineFX - - Artist Insight Concept Art Techniques -

One key dis­ci­pline I’ve learned over the years is to de­sign with my arm and draw with my wrist. There’s a dy­namic bal­ance of free­dom and con­trol in my wrist, and a dy­namic bal­ance of free­dom and con­trol in find­ing the right de­sign lan­guage when the arm is mov­ing loosely. When I be­come lazy and miss the arm out, the art­work tends to be static and life­less. These im­ages (left) are from a 90-minute demo process in a live work­shop. The 18x24-inch can­vas gave me a good amount of arm flex­i­bil­ity. Then I took a hi-res iPhone photo and trans­ferred the file into Pho­to­shop for value and colour.
