Old Tavern

The client of this wanted an old fashioned Beer tavern, so I searched for references, and a lot of beer mark pics for the pictures on the walls. One of the challenges was trying to capture the cavern like atmosphere for the image. As you know it is tricky to get rid of the 3d feel in the cg images. This atmosphere was accomplished in post production process, which is, I think, the most important step for getting your image to the next level (of course the rest have to be well done too… ) . But is in this stage where you are going to get that extra feel.  —Juan M. Puerta
