This 3D Illustration I did for the Wall Street Journal was so much fun I thought I’d share a little of the process! I began with a sketch which was approved by my favorite art directors and editors at The Journal (with a few tiny changes which were to be made in the sculpting phase).
Then I started the figures with a wire armature, packed tinfoil on top to build up mass and rendered their likenesses in Super Sculpey using clay shapers. I constructed the sinking boat out of Insulation foam and used the same material for the base. I used blue reflective paper for the water rising in the boat and layered globs of joint compound outside the boat to make the choppy waves.
Once dried I painted the waves with acrylics. I baked the figures in a toaster oven for about 15 minutes and painted them with oil paint after they had cooled. Once painted, I placed the figures back into the scene and photographed them digitally. I shot a few of them separately and then manipulated the final image in Photoshop.
