website update

Last year's illustrations produced during the pre-production for
THE MONUMENTS MEN. I was lucky then to receive plenty of reference and 3-D layouts from my colleagues in the art department. Credits go to set designer Dominik Capodieci, David Scheunemann and production designer James D. Bissell.

Some backgrounds became really busy and I thought it may be interesting to get a closer look at detail and texture. Below are the cropped versions, the full size images can be found on my website:

The Beauty & And The Beast

What looks like an oil painting is actually a digital enhanced image, produced as a piece of set decoration for 'Beauty and the Beast'. Mainly I used photoshop's 'Extrude' filter to create the look of thick paint on a canvas. Afterwards layers with 'Craquelure' and canvas textures where applied to add aging to the surface. The final image was printed 90 x 60 inches and needed resolution high enough to be able to reproduce all detail precisely (see picture below).
