What have I gotten myself into? Just how do you start a painting with roughly 5000 figures in it ...and outdoors on top of that?
I thought my approach or, "How do I do this?", would make an interesting post.
Ok, first idea, make sure I have the architecture mapped out to give me some road marks and some boundaries.
Second, start thinking lights and darks.
Next, rough in the players on the field to help with the scale and distance.
Baseball has so many components. One of my favorites is watching the crowd. I will need to give each figure its own flare and emotion in order to capture the feeling of sitting there with them......I can't believe I am attempting this.
