I really dig when an artist starts a series of illustration with a certain theme.
Luminous Creative Imaging is a group of talented creatives that focuses on putting their team together to create beautiful visuals. As simple as it sounds, Luminous specialized in 3D/CGI, Illustration, Digital Art, Manipulation, Photography and just to name a few and they are currenly based in Amsterdam, Netherlands. For the project we are featuring today, we are giving you guys a closer of the "1887" project for Royal Caribbean Productions.
...we were asked to work on a challenging project for the Royal Caribbean Productions. They had a 1887 steampunk styled ice show planned and needed a cool visual for their promotional poster. We were asked to design and sketch out the visual and all the elements in it. After this we proceeded modeling and texturing everything in 3D.
Once all the elements were put togeher we proceeded lighting the scene, rendering it and bringing it to post. In post many elements were added (like a sky, smoke, etc) to finish the piece. The skater couple was illustrated from scratch based on people in the 1800's and then upfraded and shaded with photographic material. Great project to have worked on and very happy with the result.
