Here are some of the final background for my senior film “Ground Control.”
I wanted to hit home on the water color/faux naive feeling, so all of the backgrounds were inked traditionally. The rooms were then colored with @kyletwebster ‘s amazing watercolor brushes, so I could have more specificity in color while still keeping the aesthetic I was going for.
The space backgrounds, to get those deep blacks and blue-violets, were painted traditionally on white paper with orange and yellow water colors and splattered it with black paint. I then inverted it all in Photoshop.
