In this first Lesson, you will get a tour through Steve's Photoshop setup, his process for collecting and organizing references, and finally his style for sketching graphic thumbnails. These most basic sketches will only use two values: black and white. The goal is to create this preliminary content as quickly as possible, setting the stage for future artwork later in the Course with maximum efficiency.
Black & White Thumbnails
Collect a page of photo references based on your theme and inspiration of choice. Sketch out a page of environment/keyframe thumbnails. Aim for a minimum of 8-10 ideas.
Organize extra pages of references by thinking and planning ahead. Self-critique and refine a few of your favorite thumbnails.
