Digital set, lightning, texturing, final render
It was interesting to watch how the image changed adding each element. Though you become so connected with your work that you loose the ability to see everything objective :D
I counted 23 light, 25 different shaders in the scene. Of course, the numbers do not matter if it's not helping for the scene...
All the textures are painted or created from scratch.
I didn't blog so thoroughly, but I did some research , followed tutorials ( for example for the lightning), used lots of references all the time to correctly paint the textures, catch the right proportions and scales. I hope these things that I didn't put evident on my blog are evident in my work.
I tried to bring the original idea captured in the concept drawing as much as I could, but still did some minor changes where I felt they were necessary. The goal was, and always is, to produce an interesting image. Interesting enough for someone from besides be willing to look at it at least for... 7 seconds :) I really hope our 5 weeks of work is worth of those 7 seconds :D
