Fight COVID-19 With CG Art
The breaking out of COVID-19 is severely impacting all industries and disrupting the daily routines of individuals globally. For fighting against the virus, governments are calling on all of us to stay at home to stay safe.
During the quarantine period, the CG artists confront coronavirus in their creative ways. Fox Renderfarm collects some creative 3D rendering artworks and the inspirations behind. Let’s have a look!
Artist: Valentine Panchin (Ukraine)
Caption: Well, it was a pretty funny joke going around the internet about how the virus is related to the brand name, and I decided to make my own take on it. But unfortunately, I wasn't first and later I realized that my idea wasn't original. I live in Ukraine and most of the day I work from home. Only in the third week, I started learning more stuff. So I've been pretty lazy.
I spend more time socializing online than ever before. Also, my work in the office has become remote and I split it into small portions during the day. So I may end up working at 10 pm. And on a regular basis, I stop at 6 pm. So I have less time to be creative.
Artist: Sai Dinesh Komanduri (India)
Caption: I was working on a project and took a little break from it. Because of this reason, I thought why not make an image on how the Virus might look in my image and just went on with the instincts.
The lifestyle has changed due to the lockdown, spending more time on PC than usual and sometimes it is getting frustrating just being in one place for longer periods. Toughest problem is like… Sitting in the same room for hours and not getting any ideas. Also, I'm a freelancer and I don't complain about it much.
Artist: Kyle Yeap (Malaysia)
Caption: My inspiration came from a naval mine, and I restored it with resistors. As for the COVID-19, I hope everyone can pay attention to this. It will explode at any time if people walk around.
Artist: Marien Singbo (Sweden)
Caption: I made it in CINEMA 4D with Redshift. My inspiration came from running out of toilet paper basically. I had to go on pilgrimage over 3 hours, through 4 stores here in London before I finally found some toilet paper. People have been hoarding even though the government & supply managers have reassured us that we will not run out of toilet paper anytime soon. My sister who has a 1-year-old baby has been unable to purchase baby wipes. It's all a bit disappointing and incredibly frustrating as it can easily be avoided.
I've also been very affected, at least my career plans. I had a freelance gig canceled. And I was also going to have an animation internship at a big studio in London as the last thing in my education. But it's been canceled/postponed for now.
As I will be graduating soon it's all a bit scary not knowing how the industry will recover from this and how I as a new person in the industry will be affected.
Artist: Alvaro Moreira (Brazil)
Caption: So the COVID art is about the Brazilian president who keeps denying that the virus can be dangerous to the population, he keeps saying stuff like "it's just the flu". The character is our president.
About my work life nowadays. I have been a freelancer since 2012 and I’ve been doing home office for 8 years now, so, in this aspect, it didn’t change that much. The economy is the worst than ever in Brazil though so I can't get any jobs like I used to do here. I'm still working with some foreign studios though. Anyway, it's not that bad for me
