PHOTOREALISTIC COMPOSITING DETAILS, DETAILS, DETAILS

Photorealistic composites don't have to portray an actual event or scene. Rather, photorealistic composites reference reality and are so well done that the viewer agrees to accept them as real, although many times what is being portrayed is an impossibility. For example, you may love a glass of beer after a long hot day, but I doubt that you've ever seen a heart in the bubbles as shown in figure 12.1. Or perhaps you have a Palm Pilot to keep track of addresses and appointments, but I hope it isn't like the one in figure 12.2.

Figure 12.1. Dozens of layers were used to create the heart and make the beer more inviting.
