Ars Thanea, a creative production house from Warsaw, Poland, created “The Ash”, a bouquet of roses that was covered in ash and lit by a burning coal fire below. The final result looks like something straight from a science fiction movie. The team said: “So we knew that this time there will be no space for any of 3D tools, we are used to on every day basis. We decided to create everything form a scratch, there would be anything ‘alive’ in this project. Firstly, we used various of materials to built the shape of flowers. Then we painted and fully covered them with the material which looks like a volcanic ash. Then we finished it up with a real burning coal, and to fulfill the gaps between the roses, we decided to use a red light, which gave the feel of a glowing. The second part was to take some photos of burning coal only, using the same perspective – it was easier afterwards, to digitally compose all the layers. As the final result was that we got a big and very detailed picture – which, to be honest, would take a much more time to achieve if we would use our regular 3D tool.” Continue reading for more pictures.
