I worked from rough thumbnail storyboards and director’s written comments. Everything else I generated, mostly with Toonboom Harmony. Some particle effects were produced with Blender and Adobe After Effects. Film grain was added in After Effects. The production company is applying colour grading that is having a more monochromatic effect. The colour here is what I used to help ‘visualize’ the construction of each shot.

The above image is a particle render (pre-composite) that I worked out in Toonboom Harmony.  It’s part of a thermo-nuclear landscape.  Some peaceful, bucolic scenes exist as well.  The scene below is what results when there are no more pesky hominids left to run amuck.
