Lasts Step – The final changes
It's time to finish the project, and be happy with the results and what you've learn so far.
This version is the clean one, not like the first one on this article, that was just for selling purpose of the VFX that could be in the video when was gonna be used for the post-production. That's also the suggestions made by Hiten Mistry.
You can see that this one in comparison to the previous one, I changed the contrast and the overall color. I thought it was to much. So I tried a second taste, but I can't still decide by myself which one I like most.
Ok, ok, I changed the size and position of the lighthouse, make it bigger in more in the line of the rule of thirds, as suggested by my friend Richard Green.
Now I’d like to talk very quickly about things that I didn’t make in my piece. Things that you should think about when you’re in the first steps of development of idea, and the composition.
I couldn’t find a way to improve more the perspective of my picture.
You should create more depth in the picture by playing with the perspective through the repetition of elements that should be placed in a way that they are going inside of the picture to the vanish points. Off course that's trick to do within my idea, because I want to emphasize the size of the crater where the ocean is frozen.
Try to create always to use frame elements, that leads you the focal point, like Arcs in a hallway that works for frame a door in the detail wall far away from the viewer. These frame elements also reinforce your foreground, midground, and background, creating depth thought your picture.
You should always try to balance the elements on the picture, pay attention to negative space, they are important. Try to create elements that make the viewer's eyes flow around the picture and always fly back to your focal point.
Remember to create depth through value changes because of the light that travels through the atmosphere.
I’d like to thank everybody that has helped me, the CGArena website for the support, and I hope you had enjoyed. Feel free to send e-mails, comment or ask questions.
Thanks, Antonio Neto.
