Interview about concept art featuring some 'Jupiter Ascending' work

Hope you guys enjoyed 'Jupiter Ascending', which is already called as one of the most visually spectacular movies ever. Here's a short interview I gave about some of the aspects of concept design and workflow, featuring a couple of artworks prepared for 'JA'. Full gallery, as well as concepts created for two other projects I've worked in the past few months, are coming later this month.

Welcome in 2015!

And here we are, in 2015. I'm still busy with professional work, pretty much 24/7, so nothing personal to post at the moment. I know, I know... However, what little time I have to do something of my own, I use for a personal project I mentioned in the last post. Hopefully, I'll be able to give a small sneak peak in a couple of months. But hey, three of the pro gigs I worked on between 2012-now are soon to be out there in the world, in February/March, starting, of course, with long-awaited 'Jupiter Ascending'. That means quite a big update to the portfolio and many cool artworks to show. More info soon!

'Phoenix 9' and VFX breakdown

No posts recently, since I've got too much work and no time for personal stuff. I'm heavily concepting for a couple of exciting projects, both to be announced early in 2015, I believe. However, I have a big personal project coming up but for details I'll direct you to its official website when the time comes :)

In the meantime, you can check out this short 'Phoenix 9' that debuted online a while ago, for which I prepared some matte painted post-apocalyptic elements. There is also a VFX breakdown (my additions are shown mainly at 1:16 - 1:21) with some impressive effects done in Blender. And who says it's not a production worthy app?

Golden peak

As I mentioned in the previous post, here is an outcome of my first 'date' with World Machine -> Vue. It takes a while to set everything up but the results are quite nice. Post in Photoshop.

'Alien construct'

On my previous hardware, Vue always crashed but since I switched to Mac, it's rock solid. So, I decided to refresh some of them long forgotten skills. Here's one quick experiment. Base layout and shapes in Maya, some ZBrush sculpting for the frozen lava/rocks and the rest in Vue. I'll be looking into World Machine next, so look out for some sexy (hopefully) mountains.

'Downtown'

Three large scale paintings created for a night-club here, in Shanghai. Large scale (20-30k pixels wide) futuristic version of Shanghai. Multi-leveled highways and enormous towers, filled with living areas, shopping malls, parking spaces and entertainment centers. The air is filled with floating pagodas and vehicles heavily influenced by traditional Eastern style. The print outs were enhanced with LED and black lights to make the environments feel more 'alive'. For the project, I also created a couple of concepts for the bar area. If in Shanghai, you can visit the club here
