3D Rendering & Digital Art: Suprematism & Constructivism

3D Rendering & Digital Art: Suprematism & Constructivism

Let's kick it off with 3D rendering from the mighty folks from RoomCR6 with their series entitled: Suprematism & Constructivism. Based on their fascination with Russian Art, they have been playing with Cinema4D and Arnold Render to bring the Suprematism Art movement from 1915 back to our modern time but by keeping its fundamental roots with circles, squares, lines, rectangles, and with a specific colour palette. The term Suprematism refers to an art based on “the supremacy of pure artistic feeling” rather than on visual depiction of objects. RoomCR6 is design studio based in London, UK. Founded by Hashmukh Kerai & Paul Stayt; they work mainly in Motion Graphics, Digital Design and Film Production. But they also work on self-initiated projects too, kind of like this one that we are featuring now. Suprematism was an art movement, focused on basic geometric forms, such as circles, squares, lines, and rectangles, painted in a limited range of colors. It was founded by Kazimir Malevich in Russia, in 1915. Photo Gallery   More Links Make sure to follow RoomCR6 on Behance

Having our share of several viral fail videos, let's just say that some of the concepts in this series revealed another aspect of us humans experimenting with objects that aren't necessarily right for its purpose.

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.

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.
