In this tutorial I take you through the process I use to integrate a design or 3D asset into an environment to establish context and visually create drama. Using the Close In Weapon System drone I created in the first tutorial I show you how I take a 2D render into Photoshop, alter lighting and colours, explaining how I use adjustment layers and masks for non-destructive editing, then importing, manipulating and colour correcting photo textures to quickly establish a scene and creating drama.
This is one of the most effective and efficient ways I know to create high impact visuals and use these methods frequently on feature films, from "Guardians Of The Galaxy", "Avengers Age Of Ultron" to the new Bond movie "Spectre".
