“Tools of the trade”
There was just a plain white backdrop to start with in the background, and I wanted to create a simple and powerful image. Since I love photography and drawing, I decided to composite a photographer and an illustrator, each holding the tool of their trade. I used a model that I photographed on one side using my Canon 5D MKII and then I drew the other character in a 3D illusion.
I had to match the giant 3D drawing to the model using the anamorphosis trick, meaning the image only appears in perspective from one specific point of view. I didn’t have the right spot and lighting for that photo, so I used a few torches to light up the model and the final result is not too bad.
