In this demonstration Ryan Hawkins explains how he uses photographs to create concept art for production, through five unique examples. Ryan discusses the speed advantages of using photographs versus painting while sharing his techniques for properly blending images so that they integrate with each other seamlessly. A wide variety of Photoshop tools are utilized in his workflow with an emphasis on lighting and efficiency. Ryan’s workflow comes from a different perspective than most concept artists who use photos in their work. As a 3D artist who needed to explore quick techniques for the look-development of his scenes, he discovered that photo integration dramatically accelerated his output. Whether you need to quickly produce concept art or add finishing touches to a 3D illustration, this lecture is designed for anyone with a basic understanding of Photoshop from the novice to professional.
