A mask was first created for the human. I also enlarged the background to fit the canvas.
Next, exposure and colour for the composite was adjusted to make it feel like its in the same world.
Then I adjusted the overall exposure and tried to change the highlights to a yellow tint.
Then green for the shadows, and a little accent of red.
Lastly, I dropped a blue layer on overlay to darken the overall image and added grain.
There were a few attempts before this final composite:
This one was too normal for my liking.
This was too yellow overall. It looks too flat.
- Josh Wong
I really enjoy looking at how Josh manipulates the yellows and greens in his work. There is such a surreal feel to them.
- Sang Han
Sang Han’s uses more blues and greens. His work gives off a dream-like melancholic feel. The grains adds a tone of rawness.
