Learn how this incredible sci-fi image was created


1. Rough concept

The very first step is to grasp the mood of the music and represent this with imagery. Artwork should speak for itself, even if it’s just an understanding of position or a sketch.

2. Work with perspective

Layering and creating perspective is key. Control the size of each element by interpolating correctly. Much more work follows compositing, so placement must create a realistic look.

3. Pay attention to detail

A project of this scope can become engrossing, so be mindful of finer details. The same amount of attention was spent on producing special effects for the roots as it was on the levitating human. This is so everything looks believable.
