“Tools of the trade”

Digital Photo (UK) - - HOW DID THEY DO THAT? -

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.
