Working on Thor: Ragnarok
Blade Runner 2049 trailer featuring one of my shots
Here's an edit featuring a collection of my shots I worked on in collaboration with others at ILM.
What I've been busy with the last few months...
Commercial I did for Royal Caribbean with VFX Studio Blackbird.la Provided Matte Painting and 3d Environments.
Below is a short showreel of 3 sequences of mine on this show.
Matte Painting & Design for the bg environment
The first trailer featuring some of my work at the start... (shot shown below). Environment / Matte Painting / Art Direction for lookdev etc. Other sequences with multiple shots using the same environment setup was used. Different era and time of day etc.
Modeling, Surfacing, Lighting, Rendering & Matte Painting with Photoshop, Maya, Mental Ray, Arnold & Nuke.
Here are some of the shots I worked on for Walking with Dinosaurs while at Animal Logic. I was the Lead Matte Painter for the show and filled in for Visual Development / Concept Designer as well.
The post colour corrections were punched up really high in some of them. They wanted to make it more colourful I guess.
Tools used: Photoshop, Maya (Renderman), Zbrush, Nuke, Vue
Skills used: Matte Painting, Concept Design & Art Direction, 3D Environment (modelling, Zbrush sculpting, texturing, lighting), Camera Projections in Maya & Nuke.
Here's the newly released commercial I had the pleasure to work on featuring the characters from Dreamwork's Mr. Peabody and Sherman!
I created all the backgrounds for different time periods of which they traveled using the Wayback time machine. From the French Revolution to Greece to King Arthurs round table.
Check out the result below as well as the "Making of" video.
Below are the final comped matte paintings. Originals without plate can be seen under Advertising & TV.
