this one features one of my concept art pieces from the film that was used as the main guide for the Hong Kong battle sequence by Industrial Light + Magic (ILM did the majority of the visual effects work on the film). Color, lighting, rain and atmosphere where all tweaked to get what Guillermo was going for as a style for the sequence. I started with a VERY rough pre-vis frame to match the shot perspective, then painted in the buildings, signs, Gipsy Danger, Kaiju (Otachi), rain and lighting effects, reflections, textures and damage, as well as the 'baseball bat oil tanker' in photoshop. Guillermo had me push the colors for this sequence to keep it different and fun. See the rest of the amazing artwork for this film in this book, including work from Ryan Drue and John Giang from ILM and all the great artists who worked in preproduction with Guillermo.
