I refined the look of my key shot in the film and finalized how I want the film to look. I also performed some tests with my 2D work to see how these will mesh together. I pinned down final things to fix with this shot as well – such as needing to bring more of the water back into the scene, how the clouds will work to enable the lighting, and how much movement will be involved.
Earlier test before colourscript and later research.
Improvement on this same shot. Things still to fix – grass/water near the foreground, cloud planes for the background, lighting and weather tests – which will correct the sharp shadow lines on the ground. Even though the earlier test had somewhat spookier colours, I feel this later test reflects the historical accuracy and dramatic tone of this moment in the story better.
