Wow… this guy is pretty amazing, check out his portfolio for more works.
The Animation Workshop is an international centre of knowledge and development for animation.
Not for nothing they’ve been called “One of the most dedicated animation institutions in the world”.
Those animations below, will surely take you to their own worlds.
1.This is just a masterpiece for me. I love the story behind it, and the execution is just spot on!
Found Julian work via Zbrush Central and instantly I was hooked – not only great technical work on the models – but also the artistic side, the concept art – just great.
Just a quick word before we start about my setup. I’m using Maxon Cinema 4D R12 – but most of the solutions will work with R9/10 and higher. My computer is using 8GB of ram and QuadCore cpu so if you fell that your project is a bit laggy – try to use less polygons (we’ll chat about this later) and should be fine. The screenshots are produced in 2560×1600 resolution, but I did rescale them to 1280x780px as for some reason WordPress has an issue with the thumbnail generation for original images. (Gregory will try to fix it). Some screenshots have different font/look on them and these are basically mixture of the experiment and proper tutorial screenshots. This is the first part which will cover the type effect and general step-by-step how to get from a font look into the pebbles look. In next few weeks we’ll go through the rendering and material setup, Adobe Photoshop post-production and for the final part – a bit of brainstorming and working around creative blockade. Let’s go!
