Sometimes I see these amazing computer generated images and, even though I am pretty proficient in Photoshop, I wonder how did they manage to do that. Seeing this tutorial opens up opportunities and really gets down to nuts and bolts of the more advanced techniques. Like for instance, I had no idea you could take a remote apart and then change each part to look how you need it to look. To me a remote was a remote, a single element in the design, and they went and made sub-elements from it. That is great!
So above is what the finished product looks like, and here is a quick run through how it go there. This all started with 4 components, a remote control, a bullet and a couple of circuit boards.
The remote underwent surgery and was chopped up into it’s parts and some additional parts were created using the circuit boards. The buttons were extracted form the remote and some were created fron thin air.
As I said before, each individual part was ripped, warped and bent. Did I mention that Photoshop is amazing? Yeah, it is. Now each part is ready for assembly.
Put it all together and slap some background behind it and here you go, an awesome shot, a slow motion freeze frame.
