The Outsiders - Fort Kerris Part 2



Here are 3 closer views of the Fort Kerris model. It was never meant to be seen as close as some of these pics show. But still needed details to give the place realism. I think one of the worst parts to do were the large textures for the island floors, these couldn't be made like the tower etc... from pics taken on location because there was no way to get high enough with the camera to take any good pics, so I used the photo's we had as reference and built these using an assortment of textures that looked close to what was actually at the location in Liverpool.

How often do I hear special effects artists - whether working with models or CGI - saying, "It was never meant to be seen that close..."

It must be both the trial and the challeneg of what you do, knowing that someone - director, producer, front-office-person/TV executive - will be pushing for MORE...

The old glass matte-painters never had to worry about that, because once the set up was agreed - the camera couldn't go in any closer!
