This days I am working on the backgorunds for the 2 shots I want to do for this project. At the beginning I was going to do just one (the one from the original concept) but I liked how the Falcon looks on top of the BG image I used for the previous post.
So I am adding som extensions to the original plate and then I'll project everything onto simple geometry to generate a slow camera movement pushing forward as the Falcon gets closer. I am still working on this, getting the buildings looking decent is very tricky to me. But it is a lot of fun!
Ans this one as you can see is still in a very early stage. But I like the few extensions I sketched so far. The idea is exactly the same as the other shot. I will project everything and move the camera forward and the helicopter will fly towards us.
Since the original plate in this shot is covered almost a 50% with water I have only the mid ground and back ground to add more stuff, so I decided to add a very close building on the left, which will eventually disappear as the camera moves forward, but will help me to create more depth. Unfortunately, I guess I'll have to go fully CG with that one.
Still a bunch of work to do and not so much free time, but I think this project can look cool at the end. So let's not stop!
Thanks for coming by!
