I was recently commissioned to create a photo illustration for a book cover. The project brief included the following; identical twin blonds, armed, 1 in casual clothing and 1 in a dress with heels (among other details). The twins also needed to be over-looking a Mediterranean city
from a balcony.
This concept required some custom photography and a few stock images. I was able to work with a familiar model and photograph the images of the twins myself. Before I photographed the model, I had the balcony photo and the Mediterranean city stock photo, so I knew exactly how the model would fit into the scene.
After the elements were in place, I waved my Photoshop wand, smoke appeared, there was a loud noise and then the final image appeared. Not really, but that would be so cool 🙂
When the book becomes available, I will post a follow-up link so you can purchase a copy.
