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.
Bertrand Benoit seems to have more and more fun with Corona. After uploading a few full V-Ray scenes to his warehouse, seeing a full Corona interior scene up there seemed like the next logical thing, and indeed – The Corona Loft is up their for grabs. As Bertrand puts it – “It’s a full, high-quality, ready-to-render industrial loft scene. Use it for fun, learning, for commercial projects, or to plunder and cannibalize for your own Corona projects”. Just pay attention to the fact it is a heavy and demanding scene.
State of Art Academy MasterClass #15 just finished and here I feature the great work of the students. This time the main theme was my cup of ‘concrete’ tea! an interesting staggered cubes house by Spanish architect Daniel Isern called Mediterrani 32, Sant Pol de Mar. It’s great seeing 12 versions of the same house, as each student had the freedom to explore how and where to visualize it.
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!
