We were commissioned by the by the people at Five Mile Press to create some artwork for a London based book. The publisher had seen our Becoming Nancy book cover for a UK based publishing house (cover not on site). We are very proud of our work ethic and for this piece we decided to make 3D models of key London landmarks to enable us to "position" them exactly where we wanted them and to light them in a very precise way for our needs in this commission.
Our reason for creating bespoke models was because we couldn't photograph our landmarks from the positions that we wanted, in the case of Big Ben, we wanted our angle to be from above the tower so we created our models in the virtual world which enabled exact positioning and lighting. Our client was very pleased with the results, as were we!
We are not ashamed to say that our attention to detail is second to none. Every aspect of the London landmarks were created in painstaking detail in order to ensure that our models looked just like the real things! All of these elements were then lit precisely to our needs in our 'virtual' studio and post processed. The clients exact words were "once we had picked our jaws off of the floor we were able to discuss your exceptional artwork". We don't mean to boast but we were very proud of this!
