Since I’m in need of a 3D artist, in this thread I explain a little what I want to do.
My first purpose is to produce any photograph I want. Real photos of Jessica Biel or the 40 years anniversary Vogue magazine cover with Giselle Bunden. You got the idea. This is obviously commercially inane but could be very useful for marketing.
Then I’d like to produce any image I want in a photo-realistic way. The sky is the limit and this could prove interesting money wise. With 2-3 days work, without a model and at a very limited cost we can produce images for perfumes, book covers and many adds.
I think this can be done now. I found out that most of the 3D artists either don’t believe it can be done or fail to understand the process. Allow me to explain.
I choose this image as a starting point. It’s a 350px image taken from a Youtube video. The young lady is a Marian Millares, Spanish figure skater, whose expression I found striking.
Then I blow it up to 60 cm 300ppi. Then I blur it something fierce to get this image (60 cm 16 bits/px 300ppi, gray scale). I got this image. I call it a light map.
Then I work my magic to get the final image. The very dark outlook is my artistic choice as is the crop.
As you can see I’ve a fair amount of freedom for the shape of things. I’m very constrained by the original light.
The process would be that we decide on an image to make, then the 3D artist provide me with an image like the light map for this image and then I make it photo-realistic.
Since I’m quite free regarding the shapes, EVERY SINGLE FINAL PHOTO CAN BE MADE WITH THE SAME 3D MODEL. The 3D artist doesn’t need to build a model for each photo. The only thing she or he needs to do is to light the model according to specifications (as close as possible but no more than a few hours work). Then we will need a rendering on a transparent background (png) and a rendering on the chosen background, end of the story.
If you are a 3D artist and want to try something that is a little bit outside your usual work, contact me here. As I said at the utmost it shouldn’t take you more than a few hours. “If it can’t be done in a few hours, it can't be done at all” is my motto.
