There was an interesting process in making this artwork. We have to make a mock-up of the mountains as the property for the photo shoot. We make our own out of Styrofoam and shape it to resemble a cluster of mountains, valleys and rivers as you can see.
When the mock-up was ready, we go to the photography process. First, We take photos of the mock-up, then just take a picture of shoes that have been customized on the lighting and angles in order to later be fitted when entering Digital Imaging process.
When entering the Digital Imaging process, we add small elements to make it increasingly real. Simultaneously, in this process we do retouching and color correction in all its parts in order to make it look more attractive in terms of look and tone. All The process takes quite a long time, but we were very happy when seeing the end result.
Yesterday while checking my Facebook I saw this awesome time-lapse video that Rik Oostenbroek posted capturing a behind the scenes of peek of his project for Nike Total Football. The end result is quite beautiful, as we always expect from Rik.
I haven't posted a case study in quite a while but it's always awesome to discover beautiful work and the behind the scenes of them. For this post I feature the work of Katlego Phatlane a designer and illustrator from Johannesburg, South Africa.
