About

We are proud to present a free project made with a great influence of nature and x-sports. You can see the process below.

Making a sketch

First of all — inspiration. Breathtaking, cold, empty and open to arctic swells, Norway’s wave battered coastline is a rare surfing frontier. We’ve decided to combine rough beauty, hobby and Nissan X-Trail for these special moments and places.

Common details and atmosphere

There are many secret and wild spots around the world. It can be anywhere: road through the mountains or seaside. Early morning is one of the best times for surfing and photoshooting. And it adds some atmosphere to image at all.

Work with plans, changing materials

A lot of time we had spent to find a suitable materials and references. You can see some experiments with the objects on the first and other plans.

Rocks, blocks and the sea

In this stage we’ve been continuing an erosion of the blocks. Also we’ve found a good references for the sea with a good waves. You can see the other rocks on the background and a tree on the first plan.

Placing some extra details

Work with details and particles. You can see some extras, such as red barrel, flip-flops, bottle, surfer in the sea and others.

Retouching and trying post

Now we are happy with a scene, but we are need to make it clean. The barrel and the bottle will disappear, but we’ve added a surfer and the global lighting.

Finalizing

Final retouch and post-production.
