Blood Planet

Dec 15th 2005
Programs: MAX, Brazil, Photoshop
This is an image for a cd cover for a band called Element (notice the large area of stars where the band logo will go for the final cover). Part 3d image, part matte painting, part photo collage. I went to a local beach and got some fantastic pictures of rocks, cliffs and beach which I then modified heavily in photoshop, merged with 3d elements like the pipes and broken machinery. The water and shore is also cg, but then layers of real sand photos and real water went on top to give it extra richness which would take awhile to achieve completely in the cg world. Then a lot of painting on top to meld everything together. The result is a giant collage, showing a long dead world with oceans of blood.
