Join David Mattingly for an in-depth discussion in this video Finding more details, part of Digital Matte Painting Essentials 1: Concept.
With the crenelations finished up, now it's time to find more of the internal…detail on the castle. I'm using that rough drawing line brush…again, that has a bit of scatter on it, just so that the line isn't too pristine…and it's more in keeping with the character of this old castle.…I'm tracing over the edges of the crenelations, staying loose, but adding…lines that roughen up the surface of the castle.…I generally don't zoom in too tightly at this point in the painting, but prefer to…stay zoomed out enough that I can't get involved with fine detail.…
When working on these castle sketches that should take under an hour, I sometimes see…students being too meticulous when painting.…And I encourage them to let out their inner child.…Introducing a little messy, broken tone into these areas of flat color from the…silhouette, will go a long way towards giving the surface some character, even if…every line is not precisely drawn. You can zoom out to check the large masses…of the castle by pressing the Cmd or Ctrl+minus key.…
