In this September 2017 Patreon tutorial I talk about how to use real-life reference to create something new. People often use reference directly, like looking for images of buildings to paint a building, but I discuss using reference as inspiration for something that isn't directly related to what you are working on. Maybe a shape on an insect could make a cool armor design, or maybe a tree texture could be used to create the skin of a character.
For the first part of the tutorial I show how I used this technique to create the Aetherborn in Magic: The Gathering for the card Gonti, Lord of Luxury. In the second part I create a new painting, showing how you can use shapes to create new ideas.
Some of the topics I cover include:
• Using reference as inspiration for shape language • Repeating elements • Character design • Creating skin textures • and more!
