5 De­vel­op­ing the car­ni­val-es­que crown

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

This por­trait is car­ni­val in­spired, so my char­ac­ter will be wear­ing an out­landish crown with feath­ers. I start with a pyra­mid shape made up of many lit­tle baroque-style curves. I vi­su­alise my idea on an­other layer and start to cor­rect the pre­vi­ous shape based on this. I want the crown to be com­pletely gold, so I pick a colour­ful yel­low/brown to paint the base. I don’t work up the light yet – be­fore start­ing that, I need to re­fine the en­tire crown and add some tex­ture.
