Hi there. The room is a stock image but the rest was custom built CGI for the adverts. Done over a month. The same models were used for the other two images in the campaign

Hi there. The characters are 3D, the background is a photo. It is unfortunately not available for purchase due to complex ownership rights of the character IPs and the agencies involved in the concepts of this image.
