Be­gin small, then work up

ImagineFX - - In Depth Portrait Skills -

I al­ways start my paint­ings in a small file, some­thing like 1,000 pix­els at 72DPI. At this low level of res­o­lu­tion, I can’t start work­ing on the de­tails, which helps me stay fo­cused on the gen­eral shape, vol­ume and light. I in­crease the res­o­lu­tion pro­gres­sively (150, 200 and fi­nally 300DPI) when I feel that, for ex­am­ple, the colour base is per­fect and won’t be changed.
