Process Breakdown

In the exclusive interview, Nguyen Hoang talked about how to create the beautiful oil-painting-style artwork.

Fox Renderfarm: Hi Hoang, could you briefly introduce yourself?

Hoang: I began my career in computer graphics in 2013 as a freelance CG artist. In Vietnam, not many people know about the CGI industry and how it works. This career was my dream job when I was a child. So, I could say I’m feeling lucky.

Fox Renderfarm: How do you feel about being the April winner of Fox’s Got Talent (FGT)?

Hoang: This is the first time that I got an award from an online contest. That was a big surprise for me, I’m so happy and I want to thank Fox Renderfarm for the contest.

Fox Renderfarm: What’s your inspiration for this wonderful artwork?

Hoang: That was inspired by "UP" - an animation movie that I love so much. You guys can notice that the house is similar to the house in UP.

Fox Renderfarm: What software and plugins did you use to finish the artwork?

Hoang: Houdini, Redshift and Nuke.

Fox Renderfarm: The beautiful color and warm light make the work look like oil-painting-style, how did you match the color and set the light?

Hoang: I first determined the mood for a peaceful place. Then start to work on the color on each asset and prop.

Fox Renderfarm: Have you met any difficulty in the creation? How did you overcome it?

Hoang: The most difficult thing is the cliff. Because everybody now the terrain always comes with the height map, so I have to find a way to displace the cliff by the slope mask in Houdini. I'm still a Houdini beginner so this gave me a lot of experience.

Fox Renderfarm: Technically and visually, which is your favorite part of this work? Why?

Hoang: Lighting. Because the overall mood comes with the lighting.

Fox Renderfarm: When did you encounter CG? Could you briefly tell us the story of your educational and work experience along your CG journey?

Hoang: I remember when the filmmakers oversea started to implement CG in movies, in Vietnam, we still have no TV to watch. During university years, I tried to learn VFX by myself. We almost learned from online tutorials until now.

Fox Renderfarm: As a CG artist and VFX Supervisor, which artwork or project you worked on impressed you most, why?

Hoang: That was our first movie called "Vietnam Airwar: The First Swallows". Cause it's my youth.

Fox Renderfarm: How did you keep yourself inspired and motivated? What do you do to improve your professional skills?

Hoang: Usually, I watch Artstation every day to learn from the best artists all over the world. And another way to improve skills and motivation is to join a contest. It really helps me.
