A beloved baseball used many times, retired from games. In the picture above, I modeled a baseball and added realistic textures. I then attached a voronoi fracture to a large dirt particle and shattered it to create the illusion of dirt flying closely behind the baseball.
I worked with these four textures to add a realistic and unique look to this baseball. Making sure to find high resolution images for maximized detail.
Camera: Depth of Field
To add a higher sense of realism, I adjusted the aperture of the camera to achieve a shallow depth of field. In some of the photographs you can see a before and after of the effects of the camera.
