The Making of Little Red Riding Hood
This is the inaugural article from a new “Making of” series. I would like to start with a brief, but high-colored compilation, which was made in cooperation with RWSL company. I was asked to create a series of visualizations to showcase the revitalization of tenement houses in Lodz. The task was highly interesting, as we could use an atypical strategy for imagining old buildings in a new quality and new character. I was aiming not only to present a new architectural style, but I was also focused on creating an interesting and daring scenic composition. I came up with an atomic bomb’s explosion and color along with its mood. Finally I borrwed the fairy tale about Little Red Riding Hood and a bloodthirsty wolf to tell the story.
Despite the visual and meritorical values, that were challenging to use with a new approach and techniques, I only had poor quality photos of the tenement houses and two dimensional technical drawings. My work looked like a precise digital painting with use of a tablet. I did not use any 3D software or techniques.
Below, I have the pleasure to present a sequence of base photos, conceptual sketches and a the end product. I have also prepared a video which shows how I achieved the final visualization.
