A quick 2 day illustration for the Süddeutsche Zeitung. It was done for an article about millionaires and their handling of money.
The idea for the illustration and the background photo were provided by the client. So I only had to build and arrange the 3D-models. The most complex part was the plane.
The money itself is only made of plains and cylinders that were scattered along a spline. The textures were a bit tricky since newer Photoshop versions refuse to open scanned banknotes. I had to used the good old Photoshop 7 to edit the textures.
