I love tilt-shift time-lapse movies, and Keith Loutit is king at making them! I first came to know his work when he published the Small Worlds series, and I kept following him since. He just published his recent work featuring Singapore as the subject. He also seemed to have overhauled his technique for this film, having the focus being more dynamic… wonder what you’ll think of that?
Efim Armand, the maker of NYC TAXI comes back with yet another remarkable personal project… a 3d recreation of the memorial to the murdered Jews of Europe at Berlin that was designed by architect Peter Eisenman and engineer Buro Happold. Efim scattered most elements in this scene using iToo’s Forest Pro plugin in a different approach he might elaborate about in a following article. Enjoy the animation and the stills on his site.
Images of our Earth from above never cease to amaze me, and this compilation of it at night taken by the crew of the ISS (International Space Station) and compiled by photographer Knate Myers shows it in all its glory. I can’t imagine what its like to wake up to these kind of views each day…
Here’s something you don’t see too often anymore, even though many of us still sketch by hand here and there. I used to do that a lot but I’m guilty of slowly neglecting that part of my art ever since I picked up my first Wacom tablet. Being good at architectural visualization is all about observing the real world around you… learn from it and carry it out in your work. Stumbling upon these sketches by MATERICA D_SIGN today reminded me how valuable it is to actually sketch what you see and take the time to study it. Sketching Ginger and Fred, or even more so – that elaborate brick work facade will go a long way when it is time go all 3d about it in a later project.
It is safe to say that no matter what render engine Bertrand Benoit picks up, the outcome will be among the best that was ever made!
with that render engine. We’ve seen that all too well a month ago when he posted his “Corners” scene rendered with the real-time GPU engine – Octane, which won 2nd place in their 2012 Apocalypse Competition (I personally think he had a first place grade entry though). I would keep tabs on the advances the Octane people are making… it’s getting very interesting in the real-time zone.
The CityLIFE challenge is near the finish-line, just 10+ days to go… and I found an amazing timelapse today, named “The City Limits”, that I like to share with you all – kick-starting the day and inspiring all the challengers to take their entries to the finish-line. Dominic Boudreault has a lot more interesting images and videos on his site, so do visit.
