TIME TO DO THE IMPOSSIBLE 4 covers - that will be seen by 300 million people, oh... and you have 5 days flat. We were honored to be chosen by the great folks at Sports Illustrated to produce the concepts and final production pieces for their Legendary Sports Illustrated Fantasy Football Issue. They handed us the player image RAWs and said "Your theme is fantasy, go nuts." Which was music to our ears.
The Concept

The concept was to create 4 epics covers for Sports Illustrated, showing the best skills of each player and make them super skilleds!

So for each one we developed a unique look and feel.

The Production

We create all the images using photoshop and 3d, we love to mix these programs and for this specific job we need to create that EPIC style, so we went a little bit over the top to create this feeling that the players are doing something magical.
