Mercedes Silver Arrow Composite
This piece was created back in 2015. At that time, I was relatively new to compositing and so my skills back then, weren’t as good as they are now. For this piece, I used Cinema 4D to create the render and Photoshop for the compositing. The images below are the stages I took to create the final piece.
The model and the images used were all found online, but since this piece was created a while back, I can’t specifically remember where the model is from, but that I downloaded it from a website. The scene was very basic as it consisted of the essential objects needed for compositing. It had a floor for catching the shadows, which was a planar object with the background texture with a frontal projection, a light for simulating the sky light, a sky dome for casting the IBL lighting (which is why I needed the extra lighting from the light object), a background object for the projection of the texture and the model.
A majority of the compositing was done inside of Photoshop. I used multiple smoke brushes and filers to help me create my piece. Although some touch ups are needed to the final composite, it is still for me, a successful landmark in my early history of something I intend to do, for a career.
