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.

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

Rock Dawn

Spent a couple short bursts to mash this piece together.

I used Megascans rocks and an element from Kitbash 3d’s Egypt set.

Here’s what I came up with.

Redshift and Octane Tutorials

I love to watch tutorials on other artists workflows and tools. You never know what little kernel of awesomeness you’ll unravel. This rainy weekend I was trying out some of Jama Jurabaev’s tutorials and Steven Cormann’s new tutorial. Both artists are amazing and seeing their process unfold is a delight.

Jama’s tutorial is on gumroad (he has a bunch). But the ones I took an interest in are using Octane renderer and Blender.

To contrast that, Steven Cormann has just released his tutorial, Epic Matte Shot. He is using Redshift as his renderer. He does a great job breaking down his workflow.

If you get a chance take a look at both artists tutorials and their work. You will not be disappointed.
