Well I thought I was finished working out the general look of the backgrounds in my film, but I decided a little more tweaking was required. One addition that required far more work than was necessary given it’s small feature in the final image is the Eiffel Tower. Other than that I just fiddled around with the levels of things and gave the ground plane a deeper colour than the sky. I also discarded yesterday’s decision to go black and white.
Since it took the vast majority of my time, I figured I should exhibit the raw artwork for the tower too, done in gouache and ink:
I have to say that I’m not happy about my over-reliance on digital manipulation. I’ve talked before about my disliking of that, so I won’t go into it again. However I’m having to compensate for my lack of painting skills!
