I experiment sometimes so in a few of these I was trying to see how Brush economy worked and how weird filters make it very hard to guesstimate the right color. Very interesting
Most of these are from the shot The last kingdom
Changing some colors around, adding more visual interest and setting the final mood before going into the final render. I still feel like I need to take some of the earlier clear message and work it back in. Very curious how this will end up looking

I will be using 3D and photomanipulation for this as a way of matte painting and concept design how it has become popular recently.
I wanted to do something on epic scale, preferable with science fiction influences, a spaceship and a traveller. I want to give the sense of adventure as well as awe and.
Very curious to how this will turn out.

Then I do studies from one of my favourite movies, cloud atlas. In this I study a bunch of things. Mostly color harmony, values and composition. I'm also about to pick up on storyboarding some more too

Here are some of the sketches I did as a morning warmup. All of these were done in 1 minute or less
Been working on and off for a good few weeks/months(?) and it has been a lovely voyage through frustration, excitement and fuzzy feelings when all the parts came together. Very excited to get this out!
Image on the left is the initial sketch I made to get the tone and feel right. I really wanted a warm and mysterious setting for this to work. So I started with all warm colors and gradually built up the color scheme after the sketch. Through feedback I realised it needed a bit of balance so I added more cyan and an off screen blue light on the left. This gave some more gravitas to the existing warm color scheme.
Credit where credit is due to one of my favourite bands out there: Patrick Watson to inspire me with his song 'big bird in a small cage' And my friend Zouhayer Gharbi for relentless feedback and encouragement. Also the Dutch concept artist facebook group which has been really helpful :)
