Nature In-Vader is another amazing digital illustration by Adam Spizak and on this post he will share with us step by step of how this nature inspired Star Wars image was done. Enjoy this awesome case study!
Some time ago the idea I had an idea to create nature inspired image that would have both the nature eco/environmentemental theme. The same time i was thinking it would be fun to make a cross into Star Wars on one had - invaders tribute on the other side.The project was open for few months (busy times lately so it was worked on nights), most of the elements was done in Maxon Cinema 4D and Pixologic ZBrush, other elements like Death Star took few days being hand-drawn. It all started with this basic concept.
Base of the rendering was done - colours established , mixed two sets of materials for the mask - glossy black and glossy white to break the black colours a bit, some of the bg shapes were put in - done in PS.
Frontal textures were added in to get darker worn off feel, all the mask GI lights were boosted, mask cracks added as well, invader screen was added inside the right eye.
A lot more detail was added - plastic bags, the death star was hand-drawn and added in as a smoke shape from the light sabre cut, phone and modem are 80' reference.
Florals were added with the bird - to balance out the right side and add the nature element, iPhone screes were fixed, lots of smaller elements - from the storm trooper to the neon sign
More tweaking - adding details (small debris and dust) water and fishes were added as 2nd nature element and visual balance out for the right hand side. final polishing, colour corrections and depth of field.
