Babylon A.D. (2008) color studies

I like studies such complex shots now for understanding movie shot composition and film color composition. 
As you can see in this shot we have only one color accent.

The Parallax View color studie

This is interesting shot because there no simple shapes only textures so it was interesting for me to do this painting.
There only 2 main colors - blue for light and green-yellow for shadow. And you can clear see man because he is only color accent in this composition.

Remains (2011) movie sketch

I must say that Remains is very cool film. This is horror but without horror movie's stamp and templates. Yes you will see zombies and some blood but movie rhythm is absolutely no typical for horror. Quiet moves, dialogs and camera moves no rush at all. You must see this movie if you like something different :)
In this sketch I try to catch flash of light and scenes mood.
This time I used Hard light for color layer with Mask for opasity. I did it for achieving different color saturation for this screen - hight saturated color for flash area (100% opacity) and less saturated other area (35% opacity).

Chimera character concept

I did this Chimera concept for online challenge at 
More information about Chimera
I try to create something different. I suppose that it can be woman with some inner conflicts that decided to take face of lion and goat so she is not plain mutant but more metaphorical lion and goat and snake inside.

Blade blood blue

I thought that movies like Blade must be interesting to analyze from composition and color side. And I find something ) Blade is tale about vampyres and have many scenes with blood. Complimentary color for red is bluish green. So most of the Blade's scenes are in blue colors.

Light studies

One more girl. In this case it was light from top right so colors more natural and not over saturated less contrast shadows.

Light studies

Decided to draw different light from references. Reading Anatomy for Fantasy Artists and trying to implement some ideas.
Tools: Photoshop + Wacom tablet.
First layer with 2 tones. 1 for shadow and 1 for light.
One more tone for shadow
One more layer with deep darck tone. This is final b/w version.
Add overlay layer with base colors.
Added second light and background + small touches on face.
