Amazingly done! inspiring ! reminds me of my italy trip back to 2012!
I really wanna learning how to paint color keys, do u have good suggestions? thank you so much
Yes this was a really interesting sequence. At first we were going to use colors close to the ones in Renaissance paintings. It looked really nice, but way too serious for the tone of the movie. So then I tried to find the right balance between those colors and more cartoony, saturated colors. I grew up reading Asterix, so I really enjoyed painting italian architecture and landscapes.
As for painting color keys, if you want to get really good at it, you need to study two disciplines:
1- traditional painting: This gives you knowledge about basic composition of shapes, contrast and color, as well as understanding of form and color theory.
2- Cinematography: The kinds of compositions we use in film are different from the ones in a traditional painting. Usually you only have a couple of seconds to look at a shot, so telling the story clearly with visual elements is a must. There are pretty good cinematography books out there. You can also look at films you like and study how the cinematographers have decided to set everything up. Studying black and white film is great because it simplifies things. This is a good place to start for understanding how to stage with light. I hope this helps!!
