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!
There are benefits to using 3d people models directly within our 3d scenes to be rendered, and as a SketchUP user I’m very happy to see that AXYZ Design joined forces with Chaos Group and announced today about the integration of AXYZ’s 3d human assets libraries with V-Ray for SketchUP and Rhino.
I’ve noticed more great visuals being done recently using the SketchUP + V-Ray combo. The latest v2.0 release surly contributed to this bump with many great feature additions making the SketchUP native plugin much more capable and not so far from its bigger brothers on 3dsmax & Maya. It is also important to note that most of these visuals are being made by architects that use SketchUP for their design process… they are not professional visualization artists first. François (Frankoi) RIBOULEAU is one of them and his tribute to H&DEM 56 Leonard Street project captured my attention. His process is simple and the result is great looking. Enjoy the read and tell us what you think in the comments section.
nookta‘s Mediterranean House was chosen by Chaos Group to accompany the launch of V-Ray for SketchUP v2.0 release and rightfully so. nookta managed to produce a highly emotive visual using a simple SketchUP model rendered with V-Ray directly from SketchUP. In this article, Bahadir Ozbek from nookta tells the story behind the image. Enjoy!
Bertrand Benoit posted on the forums a masterful recreation of a house designed by David Jameson Architects – the Graticule House (see the original Graticule House it in the inspiration section). Intended as a scene to test GrowFX trees (all of them are) and as a place to showcase Bertrand’s many great furniture models. Funny how he mentions “…I could never get it quite finished…”. I wish I can “never finish” projects this way!

I prefer drawing to talking. Drawing is faster, and leaves less room for lies.
