Making of The Arrival
A couple of months ago, I read the famous comic novel “the top of the gods” by Jiro Tanigushi. I was so inpresssed by his drawings and the story about the first pilgrims in the Everest, I decided to create a picture about mountains.
Step 6: Compositing With Photoshop.
Now with Photoshop, Icreate the picture.It is very easy to create a story with photoshop.It offers good compositing options and higher end editing tools than 3d programs. When I work with psd, I feel like a DJ mixing a set.I sample light effects, depth of field and reflection effects all thanks to layers. I write psd scripts to increase my productivity and reduce the needless repetition that prolongs the process. the matte painting: i added elements telling a story. Humans are going to meet aliens in the top of the world. After i added a composite sky ( picture made of several skies).
I croped the final render ,because the first frame was to large for me. I zoomed on the right.I wanted a “comic frame”. And final image please see below.
About the author
I am a self-taught artist who began drawing at the age of seven. The American comic strip has always inspired my work. I went into architecture, as it was a good compromise between my professional and creative sides.
It also allows me to continue utilizing my passion for drawing.And best of all, I still create comics. During my second year of studying Architecture at Marseille-Luminy, I had the chance to meet Philippe Caza, which was a great learning opportunity for me, and he still gives me advice on my work.
I have been in Paris since 2001 and I have two main activities. The first is working as a freelance 3D graphic designer for prominent architects in Paris, such as Claude Vasconi and Jean-Michel Wilmotte. The second activity is creating digital art projects which are focused on science fiction.
