REALISM CAN LEAD TO A CAREER
Inaki Gonzales, CG artist and specialist on photoreal rendering techniques at Leonard Blum, reveals how t=how the studio created virtual prop in LightWave to demonstrate the importance of photorealism as a training option
The model is based on the Chippendale chair that was proposed for the art director ANTXON GOMEZ, in Pedro Almodovar’s film TALK TO HER.
They decide to make a virtual model of it and comped it into the main room where the conferences were held.
We used LightWave and photoshop to get more realistic result. To generate a virtual environment , we took separate picture of the room at several exposures and stitched them to generate the environment HDRI that we used for lighting IBL and reflections. We did the final comp in photoshop using different render buffers for reflections shadows diffuse ID ect.
This model of Chippendale chair was created and then comped into the virtual conference room.
