The client is a leading worldwide provider of high-throughput truck scanning systems for customs and border applications. This portal style drive-thru system scans for prohibited materials within intermodal shipping containers with advanced nuclear detection capabilities. Our assignment was to create an illustration that communicated to several features of the system. First, we highlighted the drive-thru capability of the system by placing the portal pylons on a natural roadway surface, complete with lane markings. Next we created a pair of typical trucks with intermodal shipping containers that are typically off loaded from ships at ports. Finally, we montaged a photo background of an actual port to seamlessly blend with the CGI, providing the port security context within which the system is deployed. Particular focus was paid to sun angles, shadow length, and shadow sharpness to create the effect of an outdoor location.
