After I watched Sucker Punch movie trailer. I got inspired by the stunning visual so I paint something like it. I am waiting for my Sucker Punch concept art book. It still has not yet arrive, hopefully some time today. So I just watched the trailer again and study the cinematic shots (paused it). Some of the great artists I know often study movie screenshots, apart from painting and drawing from life. Drawing and painting from still life is very essential to all artists, though screenshots from many great visual movie can compliment your art skill in composition arrangement. Most of really great cinematographers have eye for edgy and great compositions. Still screenshots can be very useful for studying. And this is what I am doing for this post.

There are many things I can learn from studying really good screenshot. First of all is composition. As you can see the one I painted, it has nice anticipation moment with some great element that catch your eyes. Then I can also learn great lighting from it. Lighting is very important in painting because without light source, your painting would be just a pitch black canvas.

In this one, I just start sketching out the two main elements, characters, in the scene first. Then I look for where the dark arrange within the composition and I went after it. When I am done arranging the dark part, as you can see in the second panel. If you think about it, there is not really that much left to do except for giving the painting more lighting and hue variation. Do it right, it should not take you much time to study. Unless you want to craft out your masterpiece. Study like this can be really useful in the future when you just have to paint some concept piece without references. It makes you see how lighting and composition works. The more study you do, the better understanding of lighting you will be.
