For the Disney / Pixar film Cars, I created a collection of background images of the Southwestern desert setting of the film. These images were of a very high resolution, 10000 pixels across, and with variations in both foreground and background to produce a number of unique, individual views. Beginning with the (incredibly!) detailed sets produced for the film by the modelling department, I created 4 separate background and foreground image groups which combined to produce 16 final images. The resulting layered Photoshop file spanned more than 3 gigabytes in size.

The following images illustrate the background and foreground layers that together create the entire set. Click on a thumbnail for an enlarged view.
