Adding move­ment with weather

ImagineFX: Sci-fi & Fantasy Art magazine - - Workshops -

I think that the shot is com­ing to­gether; how­ever, it’s a bit serene and not the hos­tile wilder­ness I en­vi­sioned. I try to give some move­ment by in­tro­duc­ing weather with wind, clouds and snow ef­fects. I paint some ad­di­tional drift­ing cloud shapes that suc­ceed in fram­ing the fore­ground, and drift­ing snow on a sep­a­rate layer us­ing the Mo­tion Blur fil­ter giv­ing the lay­ers a clear sense of di­rec­tion.

Fi­nal touches

I add some fi­nal de­tail to the vista in­clud­ing ad­di­tional ar­chi­tec­ture. Dark­en­ing the trans­port helps the eye pass over it, while warm­ing its ma­te­ri­als helps it feel less monochro­matic. I add a slight vi­gnette to the bor­ders of the im­age and fin­ish the im­age by tweak­ing some of the edges. I soften some edges us­ing a Smudge tool or Mixer brush to di­min­ish dis­tract­ing de­tails.
