To save time, I painted over the photo and added new textures. I later added some new light, shadows and hair to better blend it in with the painted elements. The way that the bed linen looks metallic was unintentional, but the heavier appearance works well with the concept in an interesting way. The blue background of the sky is a photograph with some added details in the form of clouds that were painted with a customized cloud brush. I drew little details and shadows on the rough 3D bed and the 3D table to match the realism of the character, and then replaced the ship with a huge oil tanker strong enough to break the wall of the dam (Fig.04). More

rocks with different brightness levels were then needed to create a sense of depth and distance.
