1 what’s the Story?

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

Il­lus­tra­tion is more than a lovely piece of art. It’s also a com­pan­ion to a story. So while a story typ­i­cally starts with a char­ac­ter, as you’re brain­storm­ing your con­cept try to think about the tale you’re telling. What kind of set­ting will it have, what the mood should be, how ex­pres­sive are the poses, and so on. Think about the sit­u­a­tion you want to depict, and if you want, act it out and shoot some pho­tos for ref­er­ence to help you un­der­stand how peo­ple move nat­u­rally in var­i­ous sit­u­a­tions. Then sketch them out loosely. This is a great way to warm up for your fi­nal con­cept.
