ImagineFX, Fantasy Illustrator Tutorial – Derelict

Howdy folks,

ImagineFX magazine have just published a new specialty magazine, or bookazine as they call them titled, Fantasy Illustrator. The mag is dedicated to traditional Fantasy/SF illustration and I was asked to contribute a short tutorial. I choose to paint a simple oil painting study outlining the basics of value control and how you can use your smart phone or tablet to shoot the painting in progress in B/W. This helps you keep track of your values without colour confusing the issue!

The painting is based on one of my sketches set within the Sky Burial series.

Here is a look at the magazine cover.

 

I created four small thumbnails for variations in mood, contrast and atmosphere.

 

Using the iPad to check relative values in B/W without being distracted by colour.

 

The final painting in B/W..

 

..and in colour.

Many thanks to Ian Dean at ImagineFX. Head out and pick up a copy as it should be out now.

Enjoy!
