Checking the image

This is one of the most important parts where life and personality is added to the image. I deliberately didn`t mention this before, but halfway through the 3D setup I did a quick sketch in Photoshop to check that it was going to look as I had envisioned. This small sketch then became a good reference as I entered into the Photoshop stage.

Post-production

In Photoshop, the render elements seen below were imported. I have made a short post-production breakdown which shows some steps of the process. Don`t forget to put on your headphones!

Final image

Finally, just a few thoughts: I often find that it’s true that ‘less is more’. At a glance it seems I worked a lot and included a lot of detail in my image, but that's not true! I think many people get lost in detail and forget to take care of the more important things like mood and emotion. I want to emphasize that this is just useful advice though, if you are not sure that it helps you in what you are doing just grab some basic shapes then go to Photoshop and do some quick sketches. It’s all about experimentation…
