Billington’s Sugar – Gingerbread man

Oh my goodness…I am soooo tasty! This image combined baking (real slabs of gingerbread), photography, CGI and Retouch. The Gingham table cloth was photographed, we also baked sheets of gingerbread (trickier than you think to get a really nice interesting texture – not too smooth or too coarse!) and some actual gingerbread men & women – just to eat – to keep morale up. The gingerbread man himself (and the plate he sits on) is Computer Generated. This gave us the necessary control to adjust his proportions, arm position, expression, in line with our client’s feedback.
