A leaf canopy helps to frame the com­po­si­tion and ad­vance the sto­ry­telling

ImagineFX - - In Depth Strong Concept Art -

I want to give this en­vi­ron­ment a sense of be­ing en­closed, so I add some leaves at the top of the im­age. The leaves also help to add a feel­ing of weight and drama, as if the scene is lead­ing up to a spe­cific sto­ry­telling mo­ment. When I paint such sup­port­ing el­e­ments I al­ways try to see them as shapes and how they re­late to the en­tire scene. It’s not an easy skill to grasp, so it may take you some time to get it right.
