Freelance Image Manipulation

23 01 2013

The CEO of Pukkah International came to me due to an issue he was having with images taken in Thailand. The images included an incomplete version of one of his turrets and he required a fully complete version in order to show to a client. The turret had a post sticking out through the roof with some beams coming out the side of it, instead of this hole at the top of the turret, the roof should have been a fully complete pyramid.

He asked me if I could remove the post and the hole from the original images and fill in the gap so that the turret was a complete pyramid. I was given 3 images each with a different angle of the turret. The first image below is one of the original images with the post still in place and the second image is the finished version after I removed the post and filled in the rest of the pyramid and background.

Through getting involved in a programme named Gen Up which was a five week industry immersion experience with TRC Media, Channel4 and the BBC; I was also given the opportunity to work at the Leith Agency for a week.

During my time at the Leith Agency I worked on a 3D logo for a company named ASCO and created 5 different concepts for consideration:


In the last three days of the placement I was asked to create an animation of the Leith Agencies logo. I was given an illustration / idea, and had to complete the project from start to finish, including rendering, in the time I had left on my placement. Here is what I accomplished:
