Given to fly

Personal project that i've realized in collaboration with Andrea Fioravanti, great Maya artist. I've shot the young pilot in my studio, Andrea sculpted the car and then we combined photo and cgi testing some texturing and compositing tecnique. I love the feeling of a wild ride in the desert with a car, how could it be if the car could fly? Hope...

CC Please :)

Hey friends, I recently took this shot of a friend and when she posted it to her personal profile she got a response from someone that I'd like some help dissecting.

Some of you may get a laugh from this, after all my critiques of late. This is an opportunistic shot of my daughter, Rebecca. Unusually, she was ready for an evening out, very early.
