Part of my graduation project where i wanted to establish a fictional world and its civilization. By showing narrative visuals about their decisions and struggle for a safe future.
more atmospheric depth and more detail in front
detailing some areas
Finished the detail work on the background
detail work on the background
Continued the detail on top part, as it didn't feel very confined as i wanted to be.
Tried to even out the values, more to the back is lighter, in the front is darker.
Still struggling to find the values that work. I thought of closthing that was naturally darker of value vs lighter ones, but that was interfering with atmospheric perspective.
Started working on the left side of the picture. By focusing detail on one part, I had a clear guideline for detail for the other areas.
As in the sketch, i started adding some hanging drapery, had a hard time figuring out the shapes.
Found reference photos to work with. I cut them out and placed them in a composition that worked.
Sketch of the fish market. I had a clear idea from the start. Inspired by asian floating markets.
