Happy to be sharing work we have recently done in Iloura on 'Bright' by Netflix. I was lucky to be involved in design and production of matte paintings of the key shots of the Elf Town - see attached screen grabs.
The trailer looks very promising!
Tools used - Maya, Clarisse, Photoshop and Nuke, enjoy the trailer:
Since my dream of playing drums one day is still in the making I got involved in metal in slightly different way. I helped to design and create a cover for very talented group from Poland called Alcoholica. Originally Metallica cover group, came up very strong own material. Attached is the cover of their album 'Sub Zero' and few links! Check them out, they totally rock!
I used photo of my hands, some stock photography and 3d to create writing in the ice.
A man's life is derailed when an ominous pattern of events repeats itself in exactly the same manner every day, ending at precisely 2:22 p.m
At Cutting Edge I have been involved in significant amount of shots including sequence of the nearly colliding airplanes on JFK airport, shots of New York CBD as well as The Grand Central, interiors and exteriors, were we recreated whole setting in 3d. Multiple and complex projections where used to create set of dynamic shots. Comp supervision Alex Lay, VFX supervision Simon Maddison. Shots break downs coming up in my 2017 reel.
Thor: Ragnarok trailer has been released few days ago. Iloura and Method Studios took part in creation of few critical shots for the film. Our matte painting team, including myself, participated in creation of the attached environments backgrounds. Link to the trailer attached, should be a good one!
Sherazade: The Untold Stories. I had a pleasure to help out on few matte paintings for the TV series. First one is painted on top of the 3d rendering and depicts Golden City - location in the series ( two lighting scenarios ). The second one was used in number of shots in the desert - painting was used as 360 degrees panorama. Client: Chocolate Liberation Front.
Sherazade: The Untold Stories is produced for Network Ten (Australia), ARD represented by RBB (Germany) and is being distributed by Telepool/Global Screen. The first thirteen episodes launched in early 2016.
My colleague and vfx supervisor Jason Billington, from the studio where we work - Iloura, has been nominated for an Oscar! Go Jason and hopefully that statue will be soon arriving in Lane Cove where Iloura/Sydney is based.
Another Photoshop file on Gumroad of a matte painting titled Kreola - it was a competition hosted on CG Society. It was shortlisted in top 10 entries list. Within the file you will find 3d renders that served as a base for this work. Layers are named and grouped for easy navigation within the stack. By scrutinizing this file you will be able to learn my techniques.
