Issue 122 of 3D Artist is out now!
Get your Maya skills up to scratch with six incredible projects! Artists at the likes of Weta Digital, Pixar, Guerilla Games and Quixel have come together to help you boost your workflow – whether you model, light, animate or rig, there’s something for everyone.
We’ve also visited the London digs of award-winning animation studio Blue Zoo to hear about their journey so far, and we couldn’t miss staying at Hotel Transylvania with Sony Pictures Animation. They’re telling us all about the character animation for third film, A Monster Vacation.
Regular contributor and VFX journalist Ian Failes has interviewed industry veteran Phil Tippett this month, too. He discusses his latest work, Jurassic Park, how he adapted to CG and more. Producer Jeff Olson has also popped in for a chat with Hina Pandya to talk about his career across ILM and Digital Domain.
Elsewhere, Image Engine concept artist Julian Calle has given us his pro techniques for creating stunning planets, while Michael Ingrassia teaches triple-A techniques for making clothing.
Plus, hear from Andrew Comb on using the latest version of LightWave to create amazing materials, get to grips with hair animation in Houdini with Alla Chernova, and learn real-time rendering techniques with Joey Lenz and Phil Liu.
