Have been producing some very early thumbnail concept sketches today to flesh out some good silhouettes for a future modelling project.
I always use Alchemy for this process and I had forgotten – in the time between my last conceptualisation process – just how good this free piece of software is.
There are NO undos; NO saves; and, most importantly, NO real predictability to its brushes. And, this is why I love it!
It promotes randomized exploration of form and shape without the restrictions of your own creativity. For example, in the panel I created today in around 3 minutes I can see possible silhouettes for Mecha, ships, bikes and containers. I can also perceive small, medium and large level details for each.
Those that struggle to fill a white page I encourage you to embrace the chaos and let your hand run free with Alchemy.
