Title: The Gnomon Workshop – Photo Collage Prototyping with Ryan Hawkins
In this demonstration Ryan Hawkins explains how he uses photographs to create concept art for
production, through five unique examples. Ryan discusses the speed advantages of using photographs
versus painting while sharing his techniques for properly blending images so that they integrate with
each other seamlessly. A wide variety of Photoshop tools are utilized in his workflow with an emphasis
on lighting and efficiency. Ryan’s workflow comes from a different perspective than most concept artists
who use photos in their work. As a 3D artist who needed to explore quick techniques for the look-
development of his scenes, he discovered that photo integration dramatically accelerated his output.
Whether you need to quickly produce concept art or add finishing touches to a 3D illustration, this
lecture is designed for anyone with a basic understanding of Photoshop from the novice to professional.
