This is a piece i got commissioned to do for work. Our awesome HR lady is moving from sunny SC to MD. Our VP wanted to give her a funny Caricature as a going away present. She is a die-hard Clemson fan. If will be interesting to hear her reaction.
Created with: 3D studio Max, Photoshop, Gimp, My Paint
The background was created in 3d Studio Max and exported in layers to adjust the colors, reflections, and lighting. The image was then Gimped to put her in and make her par of the scene. Because I couldnt easily get a nice blended feel with just photomanipulation I switched to my Ubuntu setup and used Mypaint (which is awesome!)to make her character look more painted and part oof the scene.
Please let me know what you think. I appreciate the feedback in advance.
