Marek Denko stands out as one of the most inspiring CG Artist I know of. Yesterday, he published his latest work of art titled “Her Eventual Hesitation” showing all the things he is well known for; amazing levels of detail, great lighting, and atmospherical mood. It sparks emotion from a guy who called his, Prague-based studio, NoEmotion!
2016 is behind us with 52 Best Weekly Visualization selected, as well as the 12 Monthly Best. Now is the time to announce the Best Visualization of the Year 2016. I’m very happy to present you with the “Yale Center for British Arts” Remake by Bertrand Benoit! It is never easy to pick the best one out of the best 12, but Bertrand sure excelled this time around, showcasing the remarkable subject matter that is Louis Kahn’s design.
The Boundary showcases their latest and remarkable visuals for Renzo Piano’s 87 Park residential building in Miami. I had the pleasure seeing this remarkable piece of work for the first time during SOA Academy Day #6, during which The Boundary shared more information about the creation of the stills and animation this project called for. It is a pleasure for me to spotlight this project here, accompanied by some slides from The Boundary’s SOA Talk. Enjoy!
I’ve rounded up all of the 52 Weekly Best Visualizations for 2015 during the year, Selected the best in each month to form the 12 Best Visualizations of 2015 and now I’m happy to announce that the BEST Visualisation of YEAR 2015 is “Jeju International Airport” by Tomek Miksa, Founder of DOWNTOWN! Far from easy as all 12 are great, but it had to be one in the end, and Tomek excelled this time around.
State of Art Academy MasterClass #19 just finished and here I feature the great work of the students. This time the main theme was The Verdant Avenue House by Robert Mills Architects, a modern floor to ceiling opened scheme looking at a giant pin oak outside. Beautiful results, as always, coming from SOA!
Bertrand Benoit showcases his latest creation, three months in the making – The 3d recreation of the 1972 Metabolistic Nakagin Capsule Tower in Tokyo by the late architect Kisho Kurokawa. This is a full-CG attempt at modeling and rendering a detail-heavy urban scene, and a pretty successful one (no surprise here!). We’ve seen this project being referenced before by Jean-Marc Emy in his winning CityLIFE challenge entry. It is unique and so is Bertrand’s work on it.
