Ideas to paper cont’d

A recent shoot in Magadi inspired this piece.

I first sketch roughly the direction of the movement -as that was paramount- then filled in the details later as I was inking in Photoshop.

each character had their own solid colour pallet. I then copied the layer and added brightness to it and erased from the original image to get the shadows.
The background then came next. I chose Orange as it contrasts with the Foreground and thus got that silhouette-ey feel.
After a bit of colour adjustments to individual layers, adding  elements like the clouds, grit and Chromatic Aberration the image was complete.
