I’ve featured the Barts Square project back in August this year, and this week the making of this project was published on the Corona Renderer blog by my friends at The Boundary (it will take time getting used to this) in collaboration with Iain Banks. The Boundry, if you missed the news, is a new studio based in London specializing in high-end visualizations founded by Peter Guthrie and Henry Goss, who did the write-up for this article. Enjoy!
Here’s some crazy photo-editing on steroids leveraging stock 3d models. From the 3d side of the fence this might not seem that much hoopla to start with, but this approach seems to transform any still 2d photo into a mini 3d environment in which you can start moving and rotating the objects as long as you can match them with a 3d model which is not that hard. Now bring this back to our realm and since we have it all in 3d anyway, this opens some crazy options for post render manipulations!
Italian Architect and Illustrator Federico Babina amazes me with this fantastic set of 2d elevation drawings of buildings inspired by iconic works from artists like Piet Mondrian, Richard Serra, Andy Warhol, Picasso, Roy Lichtenstein and more totaling 27 such drawings.
Moving apartments in Tel Aviv, walking around the various areas of the city, sparked and old-new love for architecture for Tel Aviv based designer / illustrator Avner Gicelter. This evolved into a wonderful personal project, inspired by José Guízar’s ‘Windows of New York’, in which Avner illustrates complete and interesting buildings across the city. The end results is remarkable… each one a poster, with attention to the buildings smallest features and colors referencing the city. 12 so far, and hopefully many more to come in this visual reference of Tel Aviv, Israel.
You can never have enough 2d cutout people for your renders. A steady supply is needed to avoid repetition and today I stumbled upon this great looking site and resource by Teodor Javanaud Emdén called SKALGUBBAR. It is an online library of free high-resolution cutout images of people for your renderings. Finding people images on the internet was hard so Teodor started to take photos of his friends and they all started to use them in their visualizations.
I just have to share this amazing labor of love by inspiring CG Artist – Marek Denko. Titled “Rooftops, Rockets and Adventures Beyond” and easily ranks among the best and most amazing visuals I’ve seen to date – subject, composition, color, details, Details, DETAILS! A lot of love went into this gift he made for his children… A feast for the eyes and soul.
