Interview about me and my work in illustartion and concept art on Voxgroovy. They asked me what about Czech republic and the industry - I am still quite pessimistic - sorry guys
I've been invited like artist with painter Markéta Kolářová by Creative partnership program to make a project with children from local elementary school. The subject was concept art - model making and animation of the ideal future city.
We have visited game history exhibition with class and brainstorm the ideas about design and story. Markéta was the main person in the process working with kids several months and helping them to fulfill their collective vision. And the result is fenomenal model of the place! Every building has a specific function and name.
After the model was done, kids directed me to create the virtual presentation of it in animation. The both pieces were presented on exhibition with families and guests.
It was a huge success!
We loved to teach the children whole process from concept design to realization. And we're giving big thanks to teachers, coordinators and Creative partnership!
I am keeping testing parallax method for simple animation. The most tricky are characters. In this test I've used many techniques 2d/3d, photos and painting... Effect is done in Maya but you can achieve similar result in many other apps. Next time I'll try to be in 3d space early to prepare shapes before final illustartion, because fitting geometry into existing picture is pretty tricky. Cheers!
This time I've tried to make a figure in parallax style. 3d effect is done in Maya and planes with textures are sculpted to suport the shape. It's not easy to sculpt into existing painting, but it's somehow possible. Maya sculpt tool is pretty helpfull system.Cheers!
