This is a personal study project I am doing in softimage xsi (based on a concept by john wallin), this video is a wip of the layout. The camera was tracked in syntheyes from handheld footage then imported to softimage xsi and futher tweaked the focal to match the concept.
My goal is to focus mainly in lighting and comp in nuke (which I am still learning) I chosed the concept from john wallin, because the mood captured is awesome, and the light/dark contrasts create an interesting glauque ambience. Also modeling is quite modest and I can spend more time lighting/shading and doing comp.
Hope you like it.
I will try to post wips as I go...
note: all the modeling is done in xsi, except the cables and barbwire which are maya paint effects transformed to polygons and then imported to xsi. I use this method because drawing the cables over topology with maya paint effects gives a rather natural result... not to mention is a lot faster than doing extrude by curve ...etc..
This is a link to the awesome concept:
