Im­ply­ing scale

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

One way to help bring the viewer into the scene is to have a good scale ref­er­ence. In reg­u­lar build­ings it’s de­tails such as win­dows and doors that pro­vide a sense of scale, but for this fan­tasy set­ting I need to fur­ther de­fine the scale in the fore­ground. So I add or­ganic de­tails such as co­ral, sea­weed and fishes that add life and re­lat­able pro­por­tions to the over­all set­ting. This also cre­ates an in­ter­est­ing con­trast in the im­age: a colourful fore­ground with or­ganic el­e­ments sits against huge ar­chi­tec­tural struc­tures that are al­most monochro­matic be­cause of the un­der­wa­ter mood. An­other in­ter­est­ing el­e­ment are bub­bles, which is a great way to add an­other layer of de­tail and depth to the im­age.
