I see this sort of effect imagery around a lot of the time, but I can't actually figure out what they have done to achieve the look. (I'm not talking about the subject or the HDR sort of background, but more the feel and style the image gives, as I have seen this sort of technique used on other subjects).
It's like the image has been enhanced and made to look almost like a painting. I'm talking a bout the shading, highlighting etc.
Is there a techniques/tutorials around to replicate such a style?, I'd love to be able to know how this image was built from the ground up etc. Photo of car taken, background brought in, the extra subtle flares and shading, leveling out the colors in photoshop etc.
I know of digital matte painting etc, is this effectively what this is?
If you go to the chev website you get that sort of feels from alot of their advertising images, especially in the camaro section.
First time post on vfxtalk for me.
Any help would be great
