I've started this project by making a very simple lasso tool concept, just to express what I had in mind and to test composition. Yeah, I know... it's ugly! But you guys wasn't suppose to see this informative sketches.... ;)
After that, I've asked my good friend Renato Sideris, some help with the concept art . Renato improved the overall composition and the mountains' shapes. Thank you man!
After that, I've decided to make the whole foreground in CGI.
After some time playing with Blender 3D, that was the result.
Here are some 100% crops for you guys. I hope you like it!
Concept Art: Renato Sideris and João Marcos Britto.
