3D Total Features

3dtotal.com Features

After a long time trying to get one of my works into the 3D Total Galleries, this year I finally managed to sneak in there. It’s not easy to get your work included there and I want to take this post just to say how cool it is to have finally made it. To have your work side by side with the work of so many other talented folks is a great motivation to keep pushing your boundaries. Now recently I managed to get a third piece of mine selected for inclusion into their gallery and that kind of proves to me that the stuff I create does work. Of course it’s always a taste thing but still, even if you are not the biggest fan of the subject matter a picture or work/project presents, you can still recognize the skill and artistry that went into crafting a project. However, having a three of my works in their gallery is a cool thing!

And an article where I wrote a little about the process behind “From here I can see…”.

If you decide to take part in the upcoming webinar you will also receive an HD recording of the ‘From Here I Can Almost See The Stars’ webinar for free. It’s a scifi cityscape project where I already covered a lot topics in regards to post work for example. So in the ‘Beasts Shall Rise’ webinar I plan to go into more Vue/3d related material. There is a lot of ground to cover and time flies when talking about these projects. It’s insane. :D So below you find a list with topics I plan to go into. Or better ‘hope’ to go into before the time runs out. I want to make clear though that it’s a project walkthrough and not a tutorial. Even though I plan to go into some practical stuff here and there.

Introduction:

Inspiration, Composition, Used Elements

Exploring The Scene:

Setup within Vue, Terrain, City, Dragons

Terrain Manipulation:

The Photoshop File and 16bit

The City:

Closer look at the setup

The Dragons:

Working with DAZStudio & Vue

Photoshop:

Last but not least we'll take a quick look into Photoshop and how the post work brought everything together.

See you there!

MOSF - Escape Velocity

I’m very proud to have the opportunity to announce that my work will displayed at the Museum Of Science Fiction’s “Escape Velocity” event, July 1st to 3rd, in Washington DC. It will be displayed via LCD screen wall in extra large size. I personally will not have the chance to be there but I’m sure it looks pretty awesome in a size like this. =D However… they managed to have a neat event with many (more famous than me) guests there. So if you’re in the area and you happen to be a scifi fan… it may be worth checking out!

Rupert Fiction Book Covers

Rupert Pollard’s Assassin’s Series

Mid 2014 I got contacted by Rupert and asked to do a cover for his Assassin’s Cradle book. The cover itself has a pretty simple setup and I some fun working on it. Mid 2015 then I got the chance to do the cover for the follow up book Assassin’s Escape. We decided to keep the look of the first cover but did go a more complex route with what is to see there. We ended up with a rather cool pic that has elements that surely leave some impression.

Both pics are mixed media and created with Cinema 4d, Vue and Photoshop.

The books can be found on Amazon.
