For this shot, I was luck enough to receive the concept art sketch to match. After some feedback from my director, we went more towards an orange glow over the yellow hue from the concept art. I also created a board made up from the different render layers to make sure each layer was composited to best meet the director's needs.
Final Broken Down Render Layers
Disney's Short: Feast was a huge inspiration for the style. The way we achieved this look is by using Photoshop Filters. I let my director adjust the style to her liking on one of the frames. From there, I created an action commend that would take every frame and add the wavy edges.
