Romuald Chaigneau traveled back in time, to the days he played Final Fantasy 9, by creating THE BRINK. A matte painting turned into animation inspired by the game that he posted on the forums today. The result of this personal improvement project is captivating and it is very interesting to see what went on behind the scenes in the breakdown video provided. Cool Stuff!
State of Art Academy MasterClass #14 just finished and here I feature the great work of the students. This time the main theme was a very interesting and complex architecture drawn by the Studio MAPA + Studio Paralelo and called CASA EM XANGRILÁ. It’s great seeing 12 versions of the same house, as each student had the freedom to explore how and where to visualize it.
I’m trying something new here. A making-of Pikcells Best of Week 10/2105 project is in the making and Richard Benson sent me this great breakdown video I’d like to share with you all right away. The article is scheduled for next week, but seeing this you might have questions I would love to slide in as we prep it all up.
It was reported earlier this week that BIG and Heatherwick Studio are collaborating on a new headquarters building for Google in Mountain View, California. Yesterday Google unveiled the new design… It’s not a building, not in the usual sense. It’s good that it isn’t. Google Glass is back in a series of canopy-like structures. This would be the first time Google attempts to build their HQ from scratch, and an amazing achievement for Ingels and Heatherwick being singled out as best in class by Google for this project. Both in their 40’s. Google released 10 images (aerial by DBOX for sure. some of the others too but not sure which yet) as well as a video you should see to fully understand the concept, being presented by the designers themselves.
Carlos Mazon posted two impressive images on the forums this week, along with two process videos showing how he takes it from model to final image. This work was done for Wire Collective LTD and designed by Crystalzoo Architecture. Both images were rendered using Blender and Cycles. Check it out!
I’ve rounded up all of the 52 Weekly Best Visualizations, Selected the best in each month to form the 12 Best Visualizations of 2014 and now I’m happy to announce that the BEST Visualization of YEAR 2014 is “Caribbean Tongue” by Tamas Medve! Far from easy, but it had to be one in the end, and Tamas excelled in each category you choose to explore.
