Don’t jump into de­tail­ing

ImagineFX - - In Depth Sketchup Building -

Many stu­dents show me their art and when I ask how long they’ve worked on it, their an­swers vary from 40 to 60 hours. Yet the art isn’t up to the qual­ity you’d ex­pect from that length of time. That’s usu­ally be­cause they spent hours pol­ish­ing de­tails, with­out get­ting the com­po­si­tion and value struc­ture of the light­ing right. Al­ways look at the ef­fec­tive­ness of the big pic­ture first, and worry about de­tails later. Qual­ity doesn’t equate to the level of de­tail­ing. It de­pends on your un­der­stand­ing of the whole im­age.
