With winter hitting hard this week and X-Mas time coming up soon, let’s look back at some of the “snowy” making-of articles on the blog! I found the Nordic House visuals by Héctor Javier Diez Valladares during my routine browse on Behance. My eye landed on it rather quickly and I could understand perfectly why it won first place in the First Latin-American CG Contest it was intended for. With snow being a rare treat for me I’m always drawn to such images, and this one had a great feel to it and so I wanted to know more and this article came to be. Enjoy!
Celebrating winter time, here’s a look back to a great making of article by Angel Kostov, from the Bulgarian studio 1equals2, shared their CG recreation of the Clear Lake Cottage by MJMA on the Blog’s Facebook Group and today I’m very happy to share the making of the beautiful snowy image that was part of the set they initially shared.
iToo Software has gone off-piste in its latest tutorial for Forest Pack by demonstrating how, when combined with Max’s built-in Blob Mesh object of Thinkbox’s Frost, it can be used to cover geometry with snow.
It took a long time, but here is BrainTRUST session 3, featuring a work done by Gert Swolfs The Exposition Center. Check out the feedback by Adam, Alfa and I about this snowy, winter scene.
Arkin Adam Esref has made some remarkable storm renders and animation based on his CGW competition entry scene. I like his still images work on this one. Arkin has a style of his own that I like very much and it is nice to see some animated shots of his scene too. Take a look and tell us what you think of it.
