Thanks for the appreciation and sorry for my bad english!
I know, the picture is not perfect, maybe the blur you’ve noticed is part of the chromatic aberration, because can’t I used DOF in this work, anyway, congratulations for the attention to detail!
I have always been fascinated by “flying rocks”, and after having enjoyed in modeling some of them, I decided to create something about a story …
The initial idea is very simple: an old man in the doorway of his last trip.
I made some hand-drawn sketch of the elements to be included to get an idea of the final composition and then, after modeling the main elements I added all the elements that served to enrich the result (the pollen, the flower, etc…)
The most complex part was the creation of clouds (dozens of tests…)
The light setup is very simple (and probably unrealistic), but is work for me.
The color correction and the final retouch is made in Photoshop because is more flexible than the Blender compositor node.
The background is an image to which I added the planet to balance the composition.
Also the book (and the pages which ideally link to the chair) was added for the balance.
That’s all… The rest is just trial and trial and trial…
