Ehm... basically I created this set with Gijs... lots of props were modeled bij Job too.
A few of the things I did:
Testing out a cool way I thought of to create DOF bij using the median nosie filter instead of the standard lensblur filter. To create a more artistic and original look. Also it was necessary to make the 3d geometry blend nicely with the mattepaintings with a somewhat impressionistic touch.
Here I've modeled and textured some of the props, Gijs did the houses and put the set together as seen here.
You can check out some of the rendertests I did... this all to figure out which settings to use, for literally everything
Some other Render tests of the set I completet with more props and lighting;D
