Let's try this again
I wanted to weave some of the 'how' into the blog post (where you can view the large scale image, link in bio) but didn't want interrupt my ode to the giraffe. So here we go.
First, I knew I needed full body and headshots of both Ken and Ryu. I chose to shoot them in multiple poses so that I could have options later.
Realistic shadows and tones were important, as was brightness, so the decision was made to light from the direction opposite the trajectory of the hadouken (blue fireball) in order to emulate true to life physics. (cont in part 2)
