- Image Notes:
- The background image from the upcoming Gulfwar theme
depicts a collumn of American M1 tanks engaging enemy
forces. In the background, 3 Apache helicopters provide
close air support.
- While it may look like it was rendered in one pass, the
Gulfwar backdrop is actually a composite of four images
layered on top of each other! First, I created the desert
backdrop and oil-stained skies using Bryce 3D. Against this
backdrop, I rendered the three apache helicopters. The
third layer consists of the two tanks, dust, and smoke
rendered over a 'dummy' matte terrain (to provide the
illusion of depth). Finally, I imported the whole thing
into photoshop and touched it up by hand. That makes 4
layers merged together to make one 3D pic!
