Art of Epic Post 5

Open window color concept for Bomba's Surveillance Room



Closed window color concept for Bomba's Surveillance Room

Here are a few color concepts I did on Epic from a few years ago. One of my jobs on the film was to create a style guide and color concept for these different locations. It was a real challenge because the colors needed to feel harmonious but chaotic at the same time. Bomba's workstations were complete disaster areas! In a painting like the library or the surveillance room, I had to really choose what information was important for the viewer to notice and what could sit back in space. I think most of design is making this decision!
I worked closely with the insanely talented Sandeep Menon, who came up with the original concept designs for these locations. Jason Sadler was also involved in the design of the many surveillance gadgets/electronics. There are a ton!

Once again thanks for all your great feedback! I really appreciate the responses. Hope you enjoy!

That surveillance room is insane! How long did they give you to finish that one?

Ty Carter said...

Thanks Tegan!

Thanks Nasan! Believe it or not, I had less than 4 days to do the open blinds version. I was under the gun and they needed it fast!

These are awesome Ty! Did you paint that rug texture?

Ty Carter said...

Thanks Ethan! The rug texture is painted but its a lot simpler than you'd think. It's basically a flat pattern, duplicated 4 times and then transformed using the perspective tool and flattened to match my painting pov.

Think that Cosmetics Business is expensive to start? Not necessarily so. You can actually make selling cosmetics a home business. Find out the ways you can engage in this business, at how much items are usually marked up, what product lines you can start, and where you can get raw materials.

7-Eleven stands as one of the world's best-known convenience store brands. With franchise locations in both the US and around the world, franchise owners find lucrative opportunities under the 7-Eleven banner. According to Entrepreneur Magazine, as of 2010, the company claims just over 6,500 American franchise owners, along with another 30,500 international locations. In order to become one of their ranks, a prospective franchise owner must complete a rigorous screening process and produce the bucks necessary to support a branch of this highly recognized and established brand. From start to finish, the 7-Eleven franchise process only takes two to four months to complete, so a business owner could be operational in very little time.

I also wanted to ask how much of the surveillance room existed before you painted it. Did you do it all from scratch, or did you have a 3D mockup to work over?

Ty Carter said...

Hey Nasan, great question! Here at Blue Sky we do design first, then previs and then color. this was a color concept for the surveillance room. in this case, there were concept designs done before it came to my hands by Jason Sadler, Jake Parker and Sandeep Menon. From these sketches, a previs artist mocked up a rough model of the room. Then I took a screen grab to get an accurate representation of the proportions and general layout. From there, I paint over it and tighten down ideas, design, and most important color.
