For this one I had to paint the hotel, which is not a miniature, and the background. I had been given few photos of single elements and the hotel had to be fully digitally rebuilt following the same architecture of the old version. A 3D model for the hotel was created and illuminated by Nicolas Pellkofer, then i used the blending modes in Photoshop to blend it with the painting and give it a more realistic look.
