Step-by-step: How to add the feel­ing of sound to your scene

ImagineFX - - Imagine Nation Artist Q&a -

1 Us­ing a two-point per­spec­tive rig with the hori­zon line fairly high, I mark out some sim­ple shapes, such as a box around the bell. I use the El­lipse tool to draw the bell. I look at var­i­ous pho­tos to un­der­stand what the sup­port setup might be for a heavy bell, then sketch some­thing ap­pro­pri­ate. I use some tex­ture brushes to help make ar­eas 2 look more like stone. By us­ing th­ese same brushes on the gar­goyles, it should keep the viewer guess­ing whether th­ese are alive or not. I pose them all with claws to their ears, and make sure the bell is poised with the clanger just af­ter the strike. I build up the stone tex­tures and en­sure 3 ev­ery­thing feel solid, par­tic­u­larly the clanger be­cause it’s a fo­cal point. I avoid vi­bra­tion lines and other such comic book de­vices. In­stead I’ll have a few bits of ma­sonry com­ing loose. Try to have your ef­fects fit in with the visual style you’re us­ing.
