Had some time this evening, so decided to get ahead on some AION work I’d planned to do this weekend. I’m in the preparatory art stage, designing characters, costumes etc and I also need to “location scout”. For me, this means listing all the locations I need then building each in SketchUp. This allows for consistency when it comes to drawing different scenes, and it also lets me get in and try out various camera angles and perspectives. It worked well for in ‘Tomorrow’ and while it’s not a technique I always use, AION is so big that I need to have as many tools as I can that take some of the labour out of the drawing.
