A quick concept piece taking one of my thumbnails into Photoshop, experimenting with the composition and atmosphere of the piece. Here I'm trying to portray the carnival in an unhomely, eerie and unsettling manner.
Blocking in shapes with quick perspective lines.
The scene seemed far too static at this early stage, so I adjusted the horizon line to an angle for a more dynamic composition with additional details.
Some lighting effects and details to bring more atmosphere into the piece
As an initial piece, I believe it captures some aspects of being unsettling, yet I feel the scene could be much more ambiguous and unhomely given some more experimentations in framing and composition. Getting things right at this stage is pivotal to ensure a smooth transition into the realm of CG, and with this I've got a good idea what I need to look into next to better realise my initial concepts.
Any thoughts and feedback is most welcome.
