Watches in Space ~ (3D model making composited with supplied photography) ~ 1 Client Project ~ (14 images)
Stage 1 : Rough pencil sketches, studio photographs of front views of 12 watches including straps / bracelets, and stock shots of moon surfaces, astronaut and moon buggy supplied by client.
Stage 2 : Retouching watches and removing straps. Color grading to make overall contrast density and color balance more harmonic with eventual environments. Stage 3 : 3D model making of Soyuz type spacecraft, UFO, Sputnik and Satellite dish. Stage 4 : 3D model making of five new replacement watch cases inc. lugs, bezels and crowns, including the total re-build of the watch in the satellite dish. Also, 'Saturn's rings' added to the distant planet watch. Stage 5 : Materials assigned, lighting and environment worked on and final renders produced. Stage 6 : Photographic watch faces skewed where necessary and married up with the rendered models.Stage 7 : Buzz Aldrin flipped and retouched and isolated from original background. Moon surfaces, rocks and craters manipulated, and various parts blended together and colored. Stage 8 : Final compositing of all elements, with care to avoid central gutter running through the center of DPS formats.
