This is such an efficient way of doing things. I myself have a basic color pallete for the entirety of trespasser saved as swatches in my Photoshop, and use a seperate document for specific scenes to always have all the basics at the ready when I need it. Really speeds up the process.
Livesavers these things! I have even gone as far as editing shortcuts I would always accidentally fatfinger haha. The amount of times I started typing text instead of rotating my canvas is inumerable.The text tool is no longer bound to T but to H instead.
People able to design their scenes so they can reuse backgrounds make me jealous.
Honestly, if your sketches are clear enough to serve as lineart, why the hell not go for it! Also creates a nice loose/dynamic style in my experience.
3D model gang rises up once again. 3D modeling has been such a Godsend, makes my life so much easier.
I feel seen!
