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
Retouche by Studio Schrover & Gewest13
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
Typically, several renderpasse are generated to give the retouche artist extra control
See the project on Gewest13's website
