Ice palaces and paper castles

The ice palace above is a digital matte painting that I recently rendered for director Charlie Paul at Itch Film. It was used in a winter wonderland themed ad for Iceland Foods. I also sketched designs for the set, below, and painted other bits and pieces for digital compositing.

Before painting the ice palace there was a tremendous amount of sketching to narrow down design options. You’ll find just some of those sketches below the fold. The palace can be seen in the finished ad here - but blink and you’ll miss it!

Very nice.

I hope all is well.

All well, thanks. Kids growing up too fast, though - slow down, damn time.
