nookta‘s work was featured on the blog before, with the making of the Mediterranean House, and today I’m happy to share the making of their latest Best of Week 20/2015 – “Arrival”. It is their in-house project based on architecture from the 60’s in California, USA. Following the modern movement architecture, discovering the creations of Richard Neutra, Donald Wexler and Pierre Koenig, which inspired them immensely. “Arrival” describes the revitalization of an abandoned place. A place where time has passed and things were left behind. This image is the best I’ve seen from nookta on many levels, and it is great to share the making of it here with you. Enjoy!
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.
