This isn’t for my cover or a splash or anything, it’s for my story.
I’m opening my story showing several scenes of people running around while everything in the background is burning. It’s a vision of a possible future, though I don’t want that to be obvious at first, it’s just a way to start the story with a bang.
Besides using a crystal ball, which I really don’t want to do because I have characters who have the ability to see different futures without one, does anyone have any ideas for how I can subtly suggest that what’s happening is a vision? I’m going to need a way to suggest that the current scene is a vision later on in the story, so I need a way to do this.
I was thinking maybe something like making things hazy or smoky or foggy around the edges, but I’m not enough of a digital artist to know how to implement that. I’m reasonably comfortable with overlays, I’m just not really sure what I’m looking for. I’m not set on the smoke/fog/haze idea, though.
Can anyone help? And yes, I’ll give you a credit in my story if you give me a workable solution.
Thanks so much!
