here’s a picture I’ve made yesterday evening in a Blender Attack.
You can see from the following clay render that the geometry is quite simple (while working I decided to flip the images, tha’s why you see it the other way). I went for a strong diagonal lighting.
After a quick render with some basic materials I composite some layers in photoshop to achieve the final look. It took me about 4h to complete the whole project because a lot of back and forth. I’ve recorded the session and I hope I’ll be able to post a commented timelapse as soon as possible.
Here’s the compositing steps.
The trees images were found on pexel.com, while the young man it’s Teodor Javanaud Emdén himself from the great site skagubbar.com.
