Creating Montage Background Scenes by Philippe Coquet
ODESSA, TX - in progress
For my latest display Odessa TX, I would have liked visiting the original place and capturing the ‘real’ town. Unfortunately, I have never been in this region of Texas that I decided to model. Instead, I used some pictures taken by a friend of mine in El Paso (large factory on the left) Cheyenne WY and Trinidad NM (brick structures on the right). -- Philippe
The photo above shows just the model looks like without a backdrop. This is the layer that has been created by assembling 3 pictures of the display
This second photo above shows how the background looks like alone with no building models.
Finally the third photo, shown above, demonstrate how both forefront & background look like when assembled.
Comments on the images displayed on these pages:
The project being over, and with some ‘milage’ in using Photoshop, I found interesting and amusing to share with you the real look and feel of the finished layout modules (Odessa TX is still work in progress with a lot of street details, utility lines, signage, street light system… still to be modeled), mixing real models and virtual photo-montages.
I hope you will agree with me that it makes quite a difference!
