Information on the monster Nian.
This is a colour StoryBoard that I reated to go alongside the story.
My next step i preceded to recreate this image neat. I began by outlining my my environment and colouring however i was not pleased with the result the was being created.
I am very pleased with the look of the village, i feel that the style is just what i was looking for, however i wanted the scene to be shot at night time, and as you can see the village sees to be very brightly lit.
My next step was to try and colour correct the image in order to create that night time feel i am looking for.
Ive been having alot of problems finding out how to turn an image from day time to night time....i began resolving this issue by looking at how other artists have manage to achieve the effect that i am trying to create.
I notice that in most of the night time images i viewed, they creator had used various shades of blue. I decided to use this theory and began applying photo filters, and adjusting the colours.
I was much more pleased with this result than what i had previously created. At this point i also decided to go for a wider viewing format, "Anamorphic" which basically means extra widescreen, i thought that this would be a good idea, as it would help me to showcase my images when you can see more of it.
Unfortunately die to all of my colour correction, i had to redo the image again, i also had to recreate it in order to prepare it ready for after effects to animate it in 3d space.
This was the final result, it may look very bright however, it is missing the foreground that consists of trees and grass hills.
