STEP 01

This is the first sketch i did on the wacom. no other drawings necessary.major dark blocks. the background cavern is already quite there, but remains voluntarily brighter than the first closer area.the dark squarish areas on the buildings are just reminders of tones i'd like to obtain later on.
No opacity on the background.

STEP 02

Defining the foreground: adding details, and orange lighting under the main building, hanging cables... docks added on the water.

STEP 03

Defining the background. It is really too dark and too detailed for my taste, but i'll push it away later by adding brightness. I feel logical to paint the background with cold blue tones, not only because of the sky opening, but also in order to keep the action and interest of the picture on the foreground.

STEP 04

Decided to make the background building even more detailed than what i expected. Quite dangerous for the image balance, i will have to hide it later on. I'm beginning to paint the sky and the cavern with more opacity.

STEP 05

Minor step. i just need to reassure myself by adding temporary lights here and there. i'll keep the lights on a layer during all the process.
