I was wondering if artists from here could provide some insight regarding the trend I started noticing last several years when it comes to fake landscape in blockbuster movies.
I was watching teaser for the Star Trek: Picard show and they are showing vineyard/farm but instead of blue sky and lush green vegetation all colors are dull, towards the brown/yellow hue, and shadows are dark but dull. Overall, instead of making us feel we are in lively and comforting nature it makes it look as the whole landscape is withering and dying. I instantly remembered how different the same vineyard looked in All Good Things episode of The Next Generation.
Or to try and explain this on a still image example, Black Panther was another place where I expected to see a lively African green jungle and saturated blue sky but instead the first look of Wakanda was the same dull/washed out scenery. Browns/yellows, some dark green, dull shadows and bright pointed light.
After I started noticing this I see it everywhere now. What is the reason this is the way it's done? Is it a limitation of software? Or is this how it's been taught in schools? It all honestly looks as if an industrial designers were given a task to create imaginary natural landscapes.
I’ve been working as a roto/paint/comp for just over two years now doing contract work around London. Thankfully I have solely been doing comp for the last year, but overall I am still new.
However I can’t help but constantly feeling like I am bad at what I do and secretly thinking everyone is better than me, leading to them one day finding out I am no good. I submit a shot thinking “their going to look at what I’ve done and think, what the hell”.
I wonder whether it’s to do with being at places for a few months and not getting to know people amazingly well, which in turns means I don’t actually see how anyone else works. However I tend to switch between the same 3 companies, so I feel like I am getting to know people better within them 3. The silver lining of being employed by a company twice makes me not feel totally useless.
Is this a fairly common feeling? And if so for how long?
