Pal­ette and mood

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

Ref­er­ences are key when you want to build up a cred­i­ble pal­ette and at­mos­phere. Luck­ily for this work­shop, I’ve taken many un­der­wa­ter pho­tos and videos dur­ing my trips to the Caribbean. Un­der­wa­ter scenes are pretty sim­ple in terms of a pal­ette; the range of colour is mainly limited to blue and greens. Warm colours are still vis­i­ble in the fore­ground, but they soon dis­ap­pear into the dis­tance. Sev­eral meth­ods can be ap­plied to blend the el­e­ments to­gether and give them a har­mo­nious pal­ette. Try plac­ing a blurred im­age or air­brush painted layer in Color mode over your tex­tures and draw­ings, colour cor­rect­ing each layer us­ing the Color Bal­ance tool, and then blend­ing them to­gether.
