Re­fin­ing the sil­hou­ettes

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

I’ve used var­i­ous ma­te­ri­als to cre­ate this im­age – now it’s time to re­fine the com­po­si­tion in its sep­a­rate lay­ers. This also en­ables me to give the im­age a par­tic­u­lar mood and style. I use domes from East­ern Euro­pean cities, but I want to move away from the orig­i­nal ref­er­ence as much as pos­si­ble. I echo the statue’s tri­dent on the tops of sev­eral build­ings. The great thing about work­ing with Lay­ers on sep­a­rate lev­els is that you can Color Bal­ance them separately and fake at­mo­spheric depth. You can also lose de­tails in the back­ground, and this is how I cre­ate more mys­te­ri­ous shapes that are only just vis­i­ble in the dis­tance. I also gen­er­ate lay­ers of mist be­tween lay­ers of ar­chi­tec­ture to sep­a­rate them, and back­light the sil­hou­ettes of the build­ings.
