XFROG INC. ｜ REAL OR RENDER SERIES
XFROG (www.xfrog.com) is a procedural organic 3D modeling and animation software that allows users to create and animate photorealistic 3D Trees, Flowers, Nature based special effects and biomimetic architectural forms. All the plants below are from the Asia and Landscaping 2D Cutouts Folders. contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more info.
In "REAL OR RENDER SERIES", these composite images are using the XFROG 2D Plants library http://xfrog.com/product/XB-60.html and I was asked to place XFROG pre-rendered computer models into photographs. so my work, as a compositor, was to combine 2D computer plants and photographs to try and achieve photo-realism and by doing so, blur the line between reality and 3D renders. Besides, each species has 9 different variations in form or season.
Below is the compositing progress and relighting breakdown in Photoshop.
