Char­ac­ter sketch

Some­times I’ll start a scene by es­tab­lish­ing my char­ac­ters. They are my big­gest un­known at this point and I know that when I nail some­thing in­ter­est­ing I can paint in a world around them with­out too much trou­ble.

Scene block-In

I loosely com­pose a scene around my char­ac­ters us­ing a hand­ful of ref­er­ence im­ages. I’m in­ter­ested in cap­tur­ing the set­ting as sim­ply as pos­si­ble, much like I’d done with the char­ac­ters ear­lier.

Il­lus­tra­tion fleshed out

I add el­e­ments to the en­vi­ron­ment that help sell the nar­ra­tive of the char­ac­ters be­ing small, such as the ba­nana peel, and also start in­tro­duc­ing stronger light­ing.
