Then we needed a pile of books for our mountaineer to climb.
The picture had to be given a bit more width to accommodate the pile of books…
Next we needed to cut out the climber and his equipment from the background so he could be placed over his new terrain.
…and then the books were cut out and dropped in place…
…and the background reinstated.
image now basically put together it was time to add those finishing touches
that gave it that realistic touch. The eagle-eyed amongst you will have noticed
that some sections of the ropes were missing and had to be added in, most
notably the area above and below the climber’s right (top) foot where it was
hidden behind part of the rock that was no longer needed. Other areas that
needed work were where the rope disappeared into the rock, which was now where
the word ‘mum’ appeared on the pink cover. To make this look like the rope was
threaded through holes in the book cover we partially blended the image of the
books into the rock wall behind. The effect worked well.
The final touch was to add shadows to lift the climber and his kit from the book mountain…
the final image was ready to have the captivating graphics added and go to the
The finished graphic was nearly 3 metres wide and stood up well to close inspection, creating a really dramatic backdrop to our stand.
