Utopia Demo

I had the honor of giving a demo at University of South Florida St. Petersburg at the beginning of the year. This is one of the demos I made that weekend. Had a fabulous time with the students.

During the long weekend I spent a couple hours touching it up. I have a FREE version of the demo here: https://ericbouffard.artstation.com/store/JXpy/kitbash-demo

Big thanks to John Stanko for asking me down to give the lectures and demo.  Hope you enjoy the image.

Project Icarus

This was a fun little concept solely to start messing with Marvelous Designer. Granted it’s a very simple use of Marvelous. I was thinking of Raiders of the Lost Ark Pangrazio shot, a little of Hal from 2001, and Timeless show.

Image converted using ifftoany

I used Maya, Marvelous Designer, Arnold Renderer, and Photoshop. Here’s a quick breakdown of my process.

WIP Redshift and VDB volumes

Did a little exploration. I was demoing World Machine to my class and thought why not do something with it again. I wanted to test using VDB volumes in Redshift so why not combine the two. I’ll do another post detailing using VDB volumes. This is by far not finished but a fun exploration.
