my entry for the NVArt challenge - accelerate
A futuristic spy pod equipped with an ASD system ( Accelerated Stealth Drive ) the "Black Star" is capable of traveling at the speed of light and at the same time, 'hide' itself from radar; thanks to an advanced invisibility cloaking mechanism carefully built into it's shell.
in this scene, i did everything i possibly could, to depict speed & distance, but most of all create mood, adventure & velocity.
actual size is 7000 x 4375
here's a 2k version -
done using adobe photoshop CS3
techincal stuff -
- lots and lots and lots of layer adjustment tweaks, really went crazy with it had to save 6 files separately in order to get the effect right.
other things to be noted :
- layer blending modes such as lighten was used a lot to overlap the streaks/rays ; color dodge for glares
- lens flare filter
- insane use of masking
i thank my friends, vivu, dharati, dhiraj, deepak, sushrut, abhishek & anant for all their help. you guys rock!!
