updates

A few modifications to the site over the last couple of days.

The links area now contains 3 modeling/lighting projects (lighthouse, spa and temple) and several examples of storyboarding work I've done in the past.

Also, the character concepts area has been updated with new material.

UPDATE (7/9) : two additional renders have been added to the Temple gallery.

textures/modeling samples





Another example illustrating some texture work making use of combination of procedural and photoshop-generated materials.

The surface was specifically manipulated to enhance the aged/weathered appearance of the surfaces.

link: 'big buck bunny' :: 2nd open source Blender movie


Big Buck Bunny from Blender Foundation on Vimeo.

From the Big Buck Bunny site

How it started

As a follow-up to the successful project Orange’s “Elephants Dream”, the Blender Foundation initiated another open movie project. Again a small team (7) of the best 3D artists and developers in the Blender community have been invited to come together to work in Amsterdam from October 2007 until April 2008 on completing a short 3D animation movie. The team members will get a great studio facility and housing in Amsterdam, all travel costs reimbursed, and a fee sufficient to cover all expenses during the period.

The creative concept of “Peach” was completely different as for “Orange”. This time it is “funny and furry”!

The Blender Foundation and Blender community have been the main financiers for Peach. As for the previous open movie, a pre-sale campaign to purchase the DVD set in advance will be organized.

Additional support from sponsors and subsidy funds has been realized as well.

Peach also was the first Open Project hosted by the new Blender Institute in Amsterdam. This will make the project more independent, without much involvement of production partners, and also will ensure continuity.
