Some sci fi setting to learn more about light and composition, because i always struggle with that.
I first went on my usual way of adding colours before i thought about values. So stepping back, i made it black and white and then went back to the drawing board to adjust the values.
The meshes come from my “one hour of greeble” projects. I will refine some of them, where its visible and texture all of them procedurally.
Also i force myself to not use the orange/blue contrast again. I played around with the first image in gimp, until i found a hue offset which i enjoyed.
Project is now finished
I am now working on the pier in the foreground and will place come characters there.
Timeline of the progress so far:
First step: not caring about values and using the overused orange/blue contrast
Second step: looking at values and tweaking them
Third step: applying a different coloursceme
Some lights and post processing.
