a storm is coming

original is 5888 x 2506
my first big comp made out of more than two sources. it´s a task for my vfx class at college. our professor gave us a couple of holiday-pics for the base image and the task to just screw around with it and give it a special atmosphere.
right from the start i chose the lighthouse and had a picture in my mind, where it´s kinda standing alone on a small island with some heavy weather and powerful nature around it.
i like old romantic paintings of seasides with much dark colors and contrasts. the main idea was, to give it the rough and intense feeling of an angry sea with an upcoming storm, and to underline the role of the tall rescuing lighthouse, standing against the elements.


for comparison you see the sources i used below. all except the two lighthouse images are taken from free stock photo sites. kinda lot of the time just went in the research for the right elements. while processing i made several different drafts which i rejected, but at least after half of the time i had the final content, and went on with finalizing the comping.
