Mandelbulb 3D

General / 27 March 2018
I was briefly playing around with Mandelbulb, seems pretty crazy. Does anyone use this that often? is it quite useful or more of an experimental gimmick? Not very user friendly

Star Wars: The Last Jedi - Bunker Buster

General / 23 March 2018
I dont know who did this, but i did a google search for "Star Wars Bunker Buster" and came across this image where someone apparently extracted the game model from battlefront and rendered it. Its really cool people can see the level of detail in the model that unfortunately you never really see in the film. All the paneling etc is modelled.


Article - Approaching an Asset for High End Film Production

General / 12 March 2018

A while ago i wrote a pretty in depth article for CG society about working as a modeller in the film vfx industry. A lot of people following me seem to want to go the production route so I would suggest giving the article a read. I am pretty to the point about the reality of working in VFX, especially about how this is a Job and not always sunshine and rainbows.

"This article is for people thinking of pursuing a career in VFX, or who are just starting out. I will not be talking about making a model itself, but rather about something just as important, if not more: how to approach the task and all of the factors to consider during the process. I will be breaking down and covering the following:

  • Know how your asset will be used
  • Gather elements and prep the scene
  • Model correctly and Efficiently
  • Get feedback consistently
  • This is Production, not Personal
  • Clean Up
  • Hand off and following the work"

Star Wars: The Last Jedi - Deleted Hangar scene.

General / 11 March 2018

Deleted scene from Star Wars The Last Jedi. Here you can see the low poly proxy models we usually push out first while working in vfx and replace later with updated models. This is so other departments like layout and animation can start working while we make the assets on a film. I prefer this version to be honest
