Fashion Design: Nike ACG Running Collection Concept

Fashion Design: Nike ACG Running Collection Concept

A few weeks ago, we’ve featured an architectural photo series by Clement Balavoine about his perspective of Tokyo. Now he is back with another project about what he is really passionate about - Fashion Design. It took me him 9 days to create a collection inspired by the work from Errolson Hugh and NikeLab. Even though, it’s only a concept but it’s such a great exercise to express your vision and as a Nike fan; these are really beautiful to look at. Clement Balavoine  is a designer working in fashion and drawings. Clement had the privilege to work in places like: London, China and more; he has worked for a variety of brands. Clement also takes pictures as a passion and also being a creative to keep his mind inspired to make more. Inspired by the work of Errolson Hugh and NikeLab, I decided to design a capsule collection for ACG using new technologies like 3D Modeling and Prototyping to visualize and bring my ideas to life. The project was created in 9 days using various softwares such as Marvelous Designer, 3ds Max, Cinema 4D, Illustrator and Photoshop.  

Digital Art: Ghost in the Shell Collab

Digital Art: Ghost in the Shell Collab

Last month, we were all smashed by the trailer of the controversy and still in the making movie: Ghost in the Shell. I personally watched the trailer and loved it. I liked how they make an effort to keep it close as possible to the animated series. It’s also a great thing to have the Creator of GITS onboard as well. We are taking at the work from Furio Tedeschi and his 3D/digital art contribution to the project. Furio Tedeschi  is a 3D character artist over Paramount Pictures . where he is currently based in Johannesburg, South Africa. He has created a lot of characters going from the Robocop that we've featuerd before, Stars Wars, Batman and even that monster from Stranger Things. Some of the modeling work I did for the GITS collaborative project. Special Thanks to Gavriil Afanasyev Klimov , Christopher James Ford , Colin Thomas and Vaughan Ling without these guys this project would not have been possible.  

Ink Flow - CGI Animations

Ink Flow - CGI Animations

We would like to feature this lovely project for a great cause by Taylor James, a studio focusing their work into producing realistic stills, interactive animations and broadcast media but especially they are specializing in CGI combining with photography. For this project, it was a collection of videos for the treatment benefits for patients with Parkinson’s Disease, the combination of CGI and other mediums makes this work pretty unique and fitting right into its own style. The result of the campaign is just plain stunning, please take some time to watch the videos below. Hope you will like it! In partnership with PLBR, we crafted underwater ink flows to highlight the treatment benefits for patients with Parkinson’s Disease. In this visceral and immersive campaign, we combined practical photography with CGI VFX to achieve rich, detailed prints and carefully choreographed animations to create a memorable cross-media campaign.   Watch the Videos  Credits  CGI, Animation, Retouch: Taylor James Agency: Publicis Life Brands Resolute More Information: http://www.taylorjames.com.

Under Armour: SWACKET - Product Design & Photography

Under Armour: SWACKET - Product Design & Photography

I am a big fan of the brand Under Armour, in my opinion the quality of their clothing is just that good and I really do love how they innovate all the time with the performance of their material to enhance your workout or your everyday life. Also every time I looked at their latest imagery, I can’t help to notice the beautiful work from Mike Campau in collaboration with Christopher Massaro, Kristian Espinosa and 9bStudios (Yazan Malkosh, Omar Malkosh, Maram Stash, and Jessica Kim). What I do enjoy about their work is how detailed it is and you can’t almost tell the difference from a photograph. Images created for launch of Swacket for Under Armour... part sweatshirt, part jacket. Full Jackets were created CGI using Marvelous Designer, Clo 3d, and MODO. Macro details were shot in studio and post processed to match campaign.   More Information: http://mikecampau.com.

TOOLS - 3D Digital Art

TOOLS - 3D Digital Art

Luis de la Barrera-Montenegro is a visual artist, 3D, motion artist based in Madrid, Spain. He has been making an interesting 3D digital art series about our everyday tools as we all commonly know them about. But in his series, he actually replaced the elements or shall we call them components used instead of actually making 3D renders of the tool itself. The results are so clever and remarkable. Hope you will enjoy this collection!   More Information via Behance.

3D Exotic Cars - CGI Renders

3D Exotic Cars - CGI Renders

It’s always impressive that somehow you’ll look at a photograph and you’re not even sure if it’s real or not. I am especially talking about car photographs, we understand that is a tremendous amount of work to just finding the location, getting the equipment, getting the special car and crew to just organize everything together. What if there’s another route? Let’s not pick a side, let’s rather enjoy the stunning CGI work from Onur Dursun who has been a CGI artist for more than 10 years currently based in Stuttgart, Germany. With that much experience to craft his skills, Onur has been rocking in art direction, retouching and of course automotive design. Experienced with over 10 years in Computer Generated Imagery (CGI).

BEAST - Digital Art

BEAST - Digital Art

Hearing news from Adode MAX where they introduced (coming soon) the Project Felix. A product where you’ll be able to easily create 2D and 3D assets, that sounds like it could be amazing. While it’s coming soon, we rather appreciate what’s been done by artists in Autodesk 3DS MAX where I feel there is more control for your composites, lighting and etc. Let’s take a look of what Margarita Zhitnik and Denis Zhitnik have been working on for their piece called: BEAST. Other than getting inspired by Elysium and Death Race, I can’t stop referring the background with the TVs and Graffiti to the Flash’s lair from the upcoming Justice League movie. I was inspired by such films as Elysium and Death Race and I wanted to do something similar. Car I did in Zbrush and the GTR's model and props from libraries. Thank you Denis Zhitnik for help with render and materials! More information via Behance.

He has also skills a designer and also a CG Artist, using his skills as a sideline. Oleg is fluently influenced by his natural surrounding and dreaming about the future. There’s something about this series that makes it very unique and it’s not only a CGI artwork, it’s actually pieces of thick plywood sheets where he added manually layers of colored plastic. Quite impressive, hope you like it! 3D wall pannels made of thick sheets of plywood with manually added layers of colored plastic. After the preparation of plywood pattern cuting by 4 axle CNC machine. Pattern based on Simplex 4D noise distorted by fractal noise.

The "Sweet" Work of Andre Caputo

The "Sweet" Work of Andre Caputo

We just wanna warn you that the following article might be very "sweet" and you might get temptations at getting a snack. We just wanna warn you first! :) Let's talk about the ads that we are all encountered every single day. According to CBS News, we are exposed to an average to 5000 ads per day. This is an enormous number when we all know that there are only 24 hours in a day. Among ads about cars, events, campaigns and others; we'll see a lot of advertising about food. They triggered temptations to simply fulfill your desire to eat. Let's take a closer look at the work of Andre Caputo, he is a CGI artist and graphic designer based in São Paulo, Brazil. What I love about his work is how close it looks like a photograph, even though we know in the back of our mind that it's not real. Beautifully done! Here I gather: passion for working with image creation; creativity; disposition to search for new techniques and innovation; esthetic sense and seek for the best quality; eagerness for a great relationship with clients; and discipline, that allows the projects to be delivered on time.   More information: https://ac.myportfolio.com.

Unbroken Visual Effects by Rodeo FX

Unbroken Visual Effects by Rodeo FX

I haven't seen the movie Unbroken yet but as a fan of the genre I look forward to checking it out, especially after seeing some of the behind the scenes of the special effects. Rodeo FX produced over 200 visual effects for the movie and as you can see after the break the quality blurs the lines between reality and CGI a completely rad and undistinguishable manner. Rodeo FX produced 240 stunning visual effects shots for Angelina Jolie’s biopic Unbroken, including the breathtaking air combat between the B24s and the Zero fighter planes, as well as the landing scene of the damaged B24 Superman plane at the Funafuti airstrip. Take an in-depth look at how our artists crafted invisible VFX to make the World War II biopic seem real.

3D Futurist Works by Stefan Morrell

The weekend is here and to celebrate it, an awesome set of 3D works! Let's check the futurist vision of Kiwi artist, Stefan Morrell. He's got a fantastic set of works! Here you can see his vision of a technological future. Sometimes very green and peaceful, other times kinda messy and super crowded. I must say I really enjoy this last one better, because it reminds me a lot of Blade Runner. How do you like his pieces? For more of it, please visit his portfolio at CGSociety! Also, if you got your own 3D pieces, share it with us in the comments section. Cheers! ;)
