Let’s do the Raccoon

Teagan and I are hard at work on this week’s Jazz Wednesdays which means
I have to take a short break from Art by Rob Goldstein to make illustrations.

Several of Teagan’s readers have asked how I make the illustrations for Hullaba Lulu, so here’s a quick explanation: to make these illustrations I use two gaming computers and a virtual reality platform.

Each virtual photo shoot takes about six hours and I usually have to do two shoots to get the images I want.

I use four to six avatars per shoot.

Each avatar must be dressed, posed, and positioned, and getting this right
takes total concentration.

The sets I use must be built or purchased, and modified and sometimes
re-textured.

I take at least five to six gigabytes of high-resolution bitmap files per shoot.

Post-processing also takes concentration because the avatars are usually
distorted in subtle ways, so in that sense I use Photoshop to redraw the scene.

An illustration for Hullaba Lulu made in virtual reality, the image is of a male avatar holding a trumpet to represent the character of valentino
