Ryan was the one responsible for the camera in our world, we roughly sketched how we wanted to world to look when rendered to show for size. We agreed with Conánn’s advice and wanted to use objects of a known size, put in our frame, to re iterate the size of our world.
I can’t draw light and this was a really quick paint to show what I meant to Ryan. I really was inspired by the framing of the ship by Kubrick in 2001 Space Odyssey (1968). We want the camera to remain in place, however, have the planet move upward, creating a halo of light on the destroyed Earth (the giant grey blob at the bottom of the shot).
