Post-processing info:

some digital matte painting, 3D modeling, texturing, lighting and rendering of the rocky 2009. Final touch-ups in good ole Photoshop.

The hi-res - A4 size - 2009 rocks took about eight hours to render -at night time while sleeping :) The 2009 type was made in Illustrator, beveled and extruded in 3ds Max. The composite consist of matte painted background objects with different custom brushes. Some external images were used to complete the composition I had in mind for some time. Post-processing altogether took me about two hours to complete. The usual pp tricks were used to enhance overall contrast, sharpening and color enhancements.
