Smaller fig­ure el­e­ments need to be drawn with care

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

As with the de­bris el­e­ments in step nine, I’m care­ful not to over-ren­der the smaller fig­ures on the page. In par­tic­u­lar, I watch my line weight as the fig­ure el­e­ments re­cede into the back­ground. Us­ing sil­hou­ettes and strong shadow can help de­fine smaller char­ac­ters, too. How­ever, it’s a bit of a bal­anc­ing act be­cause smaller char­ac­ters might get lost in among back­ground el­e­ments if they’re drawn too sub­tly.
