The artwork was created by the talented gang at Rushes’ MGFX Studio and was based on The Beastie Boys’ “To the 5 Boroughs” album artwork.
Google sketchup models provided quick rough and ready versions of the landmarks that were then converted into Cinema 4D. The London Eye and the borough signage was completed by hand and then the 3D models were shaded in pure white with ambient occlusion to give it a graphical look similar to the print media. Final render was completed at HD and Hi-Res stills of the city produced at 10k for posters and other print materials.
We hope you like it!
