Placing a character in an image can be very interesting on several levels.

For example, it gives a sense of scale and helps to better appreciate the dimensions of the architecture.
It also adds a "human touch" to the scene.

In the case of the image illustrated here, which will be the one you work on during this course, the idea is to create ambiance, by adding different effects.

Course Content :

Adding the character: place the character in the image, respecting perspective and scale as much as possible.
Drop shadow: learn how to create and integrate it into the scene.
Luminous halo: in this case, the upper part of the character blends into the background, and is therefore not very visible. The idea is to create a light behind the character. 2 methods for creating this light will be explained. Once the halos have been created, you'll need to adjust the lighting in various parts of the image to give it a "realistic" look.
Movement effect on architecture: a directional blur effect will be applied to part of the image, to enhance the creative effect.
Colorimetry: the tonality will be slightly modified thanks to an adapted adjustment.
Questions / answers: we'll review the concepts we've studied, and I'll answer any questions you may have.

To be precise, no clipping is required in this course.

Working files provided (scene + cut-out character).

Notes :
This course consists of a theoretical and a practical part. I will adapt and alternate these two parts according to the knowledge you have already acquired, and the techniques I will introduce to you.
For the practical part, you will be guided through the image creation process.

Video summary:
This course is accompanied by a video summary.
It is recorded during the course and summarizes the key points. Also, depending on your specific needs, which will be assessed during the course, certain additional points may be added to the video.
The video summary will be sent to you in MP4 format, via WeTransfer, after the course.
