For Gewest13 we made this Abri visual & Animation
A pleasant collaboration where several disciplines came together.
Project coordination and (Art) Direction by Gewest13.
Pim4 was responsible for the 3D art

Here's a look at the different steps involved :
Proposing and discussing viewpoints with client
Make lighting proposal/ mockup of background
Modelling the shells (from photo)
Modeling props for the background
Mockup render -> for placement of models photographer Jeroen van der Wielen
Assembling background
Typically, several renderpasse are generated to give the retouche artist extra control
extra background pass
extra foreground pass
foreground fog
detailed coaster render pass
