Match to live
The goal of this project is to match a CG element to a live action photograph. This is a very important project for me to learn how to learn from viewing it, and then create it through digital media. I used Maya, Nuke, Photoshop, After Effect and Z-brush during the whole process.
Special thanks: Ben Ge
There are two photos I choose for the project. The first one is for me to match camera easily. The second one is for the background.
I modeled the robot, then put the same place as the photo shows. Then I tried to light the scene to mimic the same shadow as the origal photo.
Shader Adjustment Process
After trying to use blinn shader, I wasn't satisfied with results. So I used SSS shader to get enough translucence.
