Free 3d model Wooden Christmas Train

By | 3D Freebies | No Comments

Christmas… my favourite time of the year… I know it sounds very cliche, but I just love it, and it’s not only the gifts and the good food it’s just that the atmosphere and the people are a bit more loving and calm. Well, living in beautiful Brasov helps a lot cause this place is magical in every season but nothing compares to snowy Brasov… at least for me.

What I learned from “The Art of Books”

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

I love buying “Art Of” books, I love collecting each one mainly for inspiration and learning, but also for the pleasure of owning a minuscule part of this beautiful animated industry, and maybe one day I can leave this books as a lovely memory for my kids. Sometimes I buy the book, go over a couple of pages when I receive it, and then put it on a shelf next to the others for that day when I will need it for a project or just to be inspired for a personal project.

Making of 3d romantic scene

She Didn’t Say Goodbye…

By | Making of, Oasim's Illustrations, Pixelophies, Uncategorized, Weekly Scenes | 9 Comments

This scene actually started from a lighting exercise I was doing using VRay for Maya. I wanted to create a simple night light rig setup, and it started as a really simple scene. I showed it around to a friend of mine who is a great matte painter and he gave me some pointers and feedback on how a balcony overlooking a city scene should look like and he sent me lots of reference examples, but the most important thing that I got from our discussion was “ This scene works only if it tells a story with characters, otherwise it’s just a simple 3d scene”.
