Inspired both by the George Harrison/Beatles song and the fact that my dad has sadly stopped playing his guitar due to painful arthritis. Here we see an acoustic guitar sitting alone in a dusty old room as the sun shines on it and the world keeps on turning. This is actually a sort-of redux of an artwork I created in 2012 as a Xmas gift for my dad. He didn’t really like the original from that year so here’s hoping he thinks this new artwork is as much of an improvement as I do.
I used a volumetric light inside Poser to create the light beam effects along with a simple IDL setup. I rendered the scene twice, once with and once without the light beam. I then combined the two scenes on different layers in Photoshop so I could better/more easily fine tune the intensity of the light beam. I also used some Photoshop actions, a couple smoothing tricks, a filter or two, and an overlay or two to help finish the artwork. Finally, I added dust particles to the scene using Rons Dust brushes and a custom layer style for those dust particles.
