Turning Models Into Background Images


Two models were downloaded from Google Sketchup's 3D Warehouse. The giant humanoid Evangelion can be found here, while the NERV VTOL gunships can be found here. Next, materials were edited and prepared for Vray which was used to render the scene. Afterward, the image was edited in GIMP to add in a background sky and clouds and to apply a "cartoon" filter. Text was also added in this final stage.

The 3D Warehouse has many models from popular TV shows, movies, books, and comics which can allow people to easily create their own artwork for personal use - such as backgrounds for computer desktops or wall art for your room. These techniques can also be used for custom models to create a similar effect.
