3D Block outs using MODO and DAZ Studio: This process helps me develop a more realistic perspective and lighting. I might work over top of these Renders or just refer to them as I work. This stage can be very helpful.
Thumbnail Studies: I started by writing down a quick plot summary Then I started sketching out different beats in the story using thumbnail sketches. Im not much of a writer so for me pictures do a far better job.
Film Studies: At the beginning of the challenge I flipped through several films in the genre to find interesting shots. From there I gathered up a deck of photos then made these studies directly or in some cases modified into a new shot all together.
