    Fight COVID-19 With CG Art

    2020-04-10

    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

    Fox Renderfarm Team: creativity, humanity and love are what make us solid and strong that COVID-19 is never able to conquer. Please stay home, stay safe and stay creative! Fox Renderfarm is staying with you! By holding our hands together, victory will come very soon!

    Dear friends,

    How are things going?

    As we all know, currently, planet Earth is shutting down, everywhere empty stadiums echo to absent crowds. Governments around the world are taking extraordinary measures to curb the novel coronavirus and alleviate its economic consequences. As of March 18th SARS-CoV-2, the virus behind COVID-19, had registered 134,000 infections outside China in 155 countries and regions. Politicians including Winston Peters, Deputy Prime Minister of New Zealand and Minister of Foreign Affairs and Nicholas Burns, former United States ambassador, have stressed that its impact would be as serious as World War II. It seems that the world is at a turning point that really needs all the world citizens to hold our hands and fight together.

    In the darkest moment, Fox Renderfarm cares deeply about every staff and our friends worldwide. We’ve sent numerous masks to customers domestically and mailed packages of masks to European and Asian countries including Spain, India, Malaysia, etc, under the condition that we keep enough masks for our own staff.

    Most of us are successfully getting back to the office with our masks on every working day after 1-month working from home. No matter during the quarantine session or in office now, our unaltered purpose is to keep the services available and accessible for you as easy as it was before the outbreak. So the machinery has been working non-stop, and our customer service, technical and business support team have been working dedicatedly since January 28th.

    Besides wearing masks, everyone’s temperature is tested twice a day and we are sprayed with disinfectant every time we enter the office area. The entire office building and any facility around are sterilized strictly and timely. Moreover, discussions and meetings are brought to video conferencing to keep a safe social distance.

All your data, assets and information are accessed and transferred accordingly as usual, and it’s definitely leakage-worry-free.

    Jensen HuangがGTC CHINA 2019の講演でRAYVISIONクラウドレンダリングにNVIDIA RTXのスーパーチャージを発表

    2020-02-10

    Fox News

    NVIDIA

    今や国際的なイベントとなったNVIDIA GTC CHINA 2019は12月16日から19日に中国の蘇州で開催されました。最もホットなトピックである最新のコンピューティングによって提供される可能と最先端の現場での具体的で洞察に富んだ講演内容はトップクリエイターにダイレクトに訴求するものでした。

    AI革命が業界を縦断してあらゆる分野に広がっていることから、NVIDIAの創設者兼CEOであるJensen Huangが12月18日のカンファレンスステージに登場し、NVIDIAプロダクトの大量導入によって得られる高速化のためのAI関連の最新のテクノロジーを披露しました。

    蘇州で開催されたGPUテクノロジーカンファレンスに集まった6,000人以上の科学者、エンジニア、起業家に対する彼の基調講演では、AI展開の進歩と、自動車、ゲーム、ヘルスケア業界でのNVIDIAの取り組みに触れました。

    Jensen Huang氏は「私たちはアインシュタイン、レオナルドダヴィンチス、ミケランジェロのためにコンピューターを構築します」、「これらのコンピューターは科学者、エンジニア、そして芸術家すべての皆様のために設計されているのです。」と通路にまで溢れた会場の全ての観客に向けて熱く語り掛けました。

    さらに、Huang氏はRayvision INC.(Fox Renderfarmの運営会社)をアジア最大のクラウドレンダリングプラットフォームと紹介した上で、Rayvisionが近い将来NVIDIA RTX GPUを用いたより高速なレンダリングサービスを提供できるだろうとRayvisionのサービスロードマップを公表しました。例えば5,000 RTX GPUの最初のバッチは2020年にサービスインの予定ですが、これによりレンダリングのコスト効率が向上することが期待されます。計算上485時間のアニメーションレンダリングは39時間に短縮することができます。これは、ほぼ12倍速く、コストも7倍安くなります。

    更にHuang氏は、あらゆる種類のAIサービスを実現できるテクノロジーが市場から強く求められているとした上で、NVIDIAが先週の水曜日にアップデートした新しい推論技術を採用したディープラーニングプラットフォームは、これらのサービスを実現する上での最速で最も効率的なものになるだろうと語っています。

    これは、NVIDIAがGPUの並列処理を最適化するにあたって、コンピューティングスタック全体での作業、アルゴリズム、特定の垂直市場におけるエコシステムの専門知識を適用することで、驚異的な高速化を達成した最新の例です。

    Huang氏は「GPUアクセラレーションは、ムーアの法則が破綻した現在、次なる高速コンピューティングを実現できる突破口になるだろう」と語っています。

    NVIDIAの戦略的パートナーとして、弊社(Rayvision / Fox Renderfarm)はこのカンファレンスに参加させて頂いたことを光栄に思い感謝しております! RTX GPU、AI、5Gのテクノロジーによるドアを吹き飛ばすようなとてつもないパフォーマンスを近い将来Fox Renderfarmで是非体験して頂ければと思います。

    Telling the Legendary Story of F1 Driver Ayrton Senna through 3D Artwork

    2020-01-27

    Trending

    Hum3D Contest

    Sixth annual Hum3D competition for the best Car render, one of the largest awards event for the car 3D modeling and visualization industry, showcased plenty of creative designs from 3D artists around the world.

    Fox Renderfarm is grateful that we have a chance to interview Mr. Daniel Vesterbaek, who described a dramatic F1 story through his 3D artwork “Courage” which won the second place in the competition.

    Daniel Vesterbaek 3D Artist From: Denmark

    Courage by Daniel Vesterbaek

    As the challenge judge Calvin Bacon said, “A single image can tell stories and this one says it all. A great act of kindness and selflessness showcased in a beautifully composed render.”

    The piece tells a story about Ayrton Senna, a Brazilian racing driver, who is widely regarded as one of the greatest F1 drivers of all time. Daniel did a lot of research about the career of the legendary F1 driver and when he learned about the accident that lots of people might remember Senna for, he knew straight away that he had to make a scene illustrating it.

    Ayrton Senna

    On the challenging 1992 Belgian Grand Prix at Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps, the French F1 driver Erik Comas crashed heavily during a practice session. Comas was knocked unconscious, still holding down the throttle. As the engine was roaring at high RPMs, while more and more oil and gasoline was leaking from the car, the situation could easily have resulted in an explosion. Ayrton Senna drove by and stopped as soon as he noticed the situation and ran to Comas' car to cut off the engine. Comas believed Senna saved his life that day.

    The accident at 1992 Belgian Grand Prix

    This story had a great impact on Daniel and he thought it showed what the life behind the helmet is like. How much of a connection the drivers have - teammates and opponents alike.

    “The render is based on this event but is not totally true to it. In reality, the engine of Erik Comas’ car was not on fire - This is a detail I added to communicate, what the real danger of the event was,” Daniel said.

    Let’s learn more about Daniel’s creation process through the interview between Daniel Vesterbaek and Fox Renderfarm.

    Fox Renderfarm: Hi, Daniel! Could you give a brief introduction of yourself?

    Daniel: I am a 22-year-old guy living in Denmark working at a motion design studio in Aarhus. I have always been fascinated by film and animation and during the last 7 years have been spending a lot of time doing 3D related artworks.

    ‘Ready for the Apocalypse’ by Daniel Vesterbaek

    Fox Renderfarm: How do you feel about winning the 2nd place in the Hum3D ‘Car Render Challenge‘?

    Daniel: I felt very honored and happy when I saw the results. It's always awesome to get feedback from the people, who I am looking up to.

    Fox Renderfarm: Could you tell us the making process of the cars, especially the broken on with scratches and fragments?

    Daniel: For the cars, I did some very rough modeling at first and added details with booleans. I actually used this car mesh for both of the cars, but recolored it for the blue one. All the scratches and fragments were made in the shader. I also put a deform modifier on some of the objects to make them look like they were bent during the crash. The node network for the material of the blue car ended up being very complex with multiple layers of texture and painted masks for the holes in the body and all the scratches and dirt textures.

    Fox Renderfarm: Could you introduce the camera angle and composition design a bit? Any ideas behind that?

    Daniel: I wanted to create the feeling that people looking at the picture were on the track - in the action, so I put the camera pretty low. This was also the actual camera angle the crash was recorded in, in the real world.

    Fox Renderfarm: And at the back of the broken car, we noticed the distortion because of the heat, could you tell us how did you make it?

    Daniel: This was a compositing effect made inside the Blender compositor. In the file, I added an additional render layer, that had some simple planes with a color noise texture on them. At the areas with a lot of heat, I made the noise very strong and for the background, I added one big plane with a very low contrast noise. This way I could control in the 3D scene which areas would have more and less heat distortion. And because everything was set up on planes in the 3D scene, the depth would look correct as well. In the compositor, I used a displace node, that displaces the image based on a factor input. I input the noise render layer and got a very distorted look where the noise had a high contrast and a less distorted look for places with less contrasty noise. Additionally, I also made the noise render layer drive a blur node, which blurred out the areas with lots of heat.

    Fox Renderfarm: How long did it take to finish the artwork?

    Daniel: I worked on the render from day one of the competition and finished it around a week before the deadline. So about 2 months.

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

    Daniel: For the render, I did almost everything in Blender - Even compositing. I used photoshop right at the end to do a bit of retouching and make the final color adjustments. To simulate the clothes I used Marvelous Designer and to create the characters I used MakeHuman.

    Fox Renderfarm: What’s the most unforgettable experience in the production process?

    Daniel: There were a lot of roadblocks and also a lot of small successes in the process, so it is hard to pick out one. It was the first time I used Marvelous Designer and it was pretty easy to get into and the result was great. That was a pretty good experience.

    Fox Renderfarm: Have you met any difficulties? How did you solve it?

    Daniel: A lot! One of the biggest ones was when I realized the image was too messy. There was too much visual information fighting for attention. I tried to solve this by adding a lot of mist/fog in the scene to "gray out" the background, which is less important than the foreground. This proved to be quite effective.

    Fox Renderfarm: How did you come up with entering into the CG industry?

    Daniel: I always just did CG as a hobby, but one day I got contacted by a German company, who was starting to use Blender as their main 3D package. They wanted people who knew the software and hired me to be a part of their new team.

    Fox Renderfarm: Could you briefly tell us about the education and career experience along your 3D journey?

    Daniel: A lot of what I know came from a trial-and-error-approach. Apart from that, I learned a bunch of things from online learning platforms and video tutorials. At the two studios I have been working at, I have also learned a lot - Especially about pipelines, efficiency and about how to organize my files and time. I never went to a school specialized in 3D, but learned a lot from other people.

    ‘The Travel Companion’ by Daniel Vesterbaek

    Fox Renderfarm: Who or what project inspires you the most in the industry?

    Daniel: I am very inspired by the CG storytellers. I think the medium has so much to offer - Not just flashy VFX and big explosions - but a whole new way of telling stories, that could not be told with a physical video camera. Of course I am very inspired by Pixar like most other CG artists, but I am also a huge fan of the work that Unit Image in France is doing. The way they tell stories through their game trailers is amazing! Apart from that studio, I love Don'tNod, who is making video games with great storytelling as well.

    Fox Renderfarm: What do you do to get inspired and motivated? And how do you improve your professional skills?

    Daniel: Often times I try to take in all the inspiration I can from other people and artists. The more you see, the more ideas you get. However, I think the best inspiration is something from your own life - Something that is relevant to you in some way. I try to force myself to improve every single day by working on one of my own projects - at least a bit of time. Even though you won't make a masterpiece every single day, you will improve and one day you will end up with something you can be really proud of.

    ‘A Merry Little Christmas’ by Daniel Vesterbaek

    Fox Renderfarm: Any other things you wanna share with CG enthusiasts?

    Daniel: Hard work pays off. I know that it kind of cliché to say, but I have experienced that it is true. The road might be long and you will have to put a lot of hours into it, but even when it feels like you are getting nowhere, you are improving. That is what I am reminding myself, when I get stuck and can't find the motivation to keep working on a project.

    Master Bedroom by Jesús Gómez San Emeterio

    Fox Renderfarm: Hi, Jesús, would you please give a brief introduction about yourself?

    Jesús: Sure! I'm Jesús Gómez San Emeterio, an Architect and 3D artist from Spain dedicated mainly to Architectural visualization and to narrate what is in my head with CGI in my free time.

    Fox Renderfarm: How do you feel about being nominated in The CGarchitect Architectural 3D Awards?

    Jesús: I feel really proud and recognized, it was the first year that I participated and it was really emotional when I saw my name with the best studios around the world.

    Fox Renderfarm: What’s your inspiration for this amazing interactive artwork? And why did you create the work in an interactive way instead of just still imagery? How do you feel about the differences between still imagery/video and interactive Archviz creation?

    Jesús: I think that interactivity is a new way of experimenting unbuilt Architecture. When I do a still image, for example, I always try to express something, to make the viewer see through my eyes for a moment… And there is a beauty in that. Interactivity is more related to exploration, it allows the viewer to experiment the space with freedom and I'm sure that every person will do it differently.

    Also, from a technical point of view, you can add much more information, like to see where are you located with the planimetry in real time or change materials, lights... and see how the space changes with your decisions for example.

    I like both ways of communicating architecture, they are very different and unique.

    Fox Renderfarm: Why did you select this interactive artwork to participate in the competition? Which part of the artwork do you like the most?

    Jesús: Through last years I did a few little demos, testing and learning Unreal Engine. I thought that this work shows what I learned in a bit more professional way, so it was the only one that I presented.

    The part I liked the most was when I could make changes of materials and see how the space turned into something different in the blink of an eye with photoreal quality, it is like magic!

    Fox Renderfarm: Could you introduce the layout and lighting of this master bedroom?

    Jesús: Sure. All is bake lighting. It is composed by a stationary directional light (sun) visible at the bed and an atmospheric fog + HDRI captured by a Sky Light.

    I share the lightmass values used in this project, as you can see the static lighting level scale is really low and gives high precision in the light calculation over the meshes.

    Post Process Volume has a big impact on Unreal Engine as you can see in the picture. The cool thing about it is that all changes in real time, so it gives you the opportunity to be focused on the art direction.

    Post Process Volume

    Fox Renderfarm: We discovered the decoration and the furniture are beautiful and coherent, did you refer to any style or artist?

    Jesús: Thank you! I think that everyone can appreciate the interior design when you put some effort into it and use it as another tool for communicating ideas. In this case was a personal design.

    Fox Renderfarm: How long did it take you to finish the work?

    Jesús: That's a tricky one as I did it in my free time, maybe this master bedroom could take some weeks, but behind it, there are months of “trials and errors”, researches, frustrations and small successes that I can't even count.

    Fox Renderfarm: What’s the most unforgettable and interesting part of the creation process?

    Jesús: The best part I think was to be able to see the same scene with a very different perspective with a successful migration from offline rendering to Unreal with interactivity.

    Fox Renderfarm: Did you meet any difficulties when creating this work? And how did you solve it?

    Jesús: Of course, I met any possible difficulties, I think, fixing textures, dealing with lightmap errors, when everything works, be unable to compile the project due to unknown Unreal memory things...

    Through one way or another, every issue has a solution. In my case, I had to research a lot, hours of YouTube tutorials that maybe not solve it directly, but it is related to the problems and so on, it is a hard way to learn things.. but somehow it works and I learned a lot during the process.

    Fox Renderfarm: How long have you been in the architectural visualization career? And how did you make the decision to step into this career?

    Jesús: I finished my studies as Architect when I was 23, then I directly started to work in an interior design company in a 3D team where I learned a lot and months later I moved to a studio of architecture being in charge of the whole visualization process for 3 years until now.

    I know that 3 and a half years doesn't sound like much… But hey! They were intense!

    Fox Renderfarm: Who or what project inspires you most in this industry?

    Jesús: A friend showed me the Third and the Seventh (by Alex Roman) in the university, that was a mind-blowing moment and it look impossible to me, it was really inspiring.

    The Third and the Seventh by Alex Roman

    Nowadays, I follow the work of all the top studios and artists around the world in the architectural field: Mike Golden, Cornelius Dämmrich, Quixel artist... and from Spain like the Beauty and THE BIT, Play-Time… But also from other fields like cinema or video games like Jama Jurabaev or Nick Hiatt.

    ArchViz works by Beauty and THE BIT

    ArchViz works by Play-Time

    I said some names that can be useful for the reader, but actually, there are hundreds of amazing not so renowned artists that I can see everyday at Artstation and they worth the time to learn from their work as much as from the biggest company.

    Fox Renderfarm: As an outstanding architectural visualization artist, what do you think are the qualities that will make a great artist greater? And what do you do to enhance your professional skills?

    Jesús: Oh wow, thank you! I think that not only as an artist, but in life, a good attitude, being constant, kind and humble with people around you is really important because you can probably learn something from everyone and it is the only way to do it.

    What I do is never stop learning and trying new workflows or software that can be useful, and transform that new knowledge into something as a little personal quest. For example, if I try Substance Painter: okay, let's create an asset and paint it to the end as a final product, or if I try a new render engine: well, let's create a good illustration or a little animation clip! I don't know if it sounds stupid, but it helps me during the process and later to look back and see what I could do with that tool or whatever.

    Fox Renderfarm: What’s your next step?

    Jesús: Well, I don't know much about steps, but in my experience, if you work hard to do what you like most, things happen one way or another, so that's my plan! Keep working and learning to become a better Architect and CG Artist every day.

    Fox Renderfarm: Have you ever used Fox Renderfarm cloud rendering services previously? If yes, how do you feel about it?

    Jesús: I had the opportunity to meet Fox Renderfarm at the CG Architect 3DAwards for the first time. I think that is a good option for 3D artists like me who work with one computer for rendering videos with the best quality and be able to keep working on other things. The communication with them is really nice too!

    Fox Renderfarm: Any other things you want to share with CG enthusiasts?

    Jesús: Have fun and do what you love to do!

The chosen entry will be shown on our Fox's Got Talent! Gallery and shared on our social media platforms. The winners will also get interview opportunities with us.

    [

    This time, we are delighted to have an interview with Jeffrey Frias, one of the winners of Fox’s Got Talent! who shared his making of the awarded artwork with us.

    • Jeffrey Frias
    • Germany
    • Junior 3D Artist at PIXOMONDO

    Centaur by Jeffrey Frias

    Jeffrey Frias, graduated from PIXL VISN Media Arts Academy, is a 3D Generalist specializing in texturing, lighting, modeling and compositing. Centaur is the project he did for his student demo reel.

    Now, Jeffrey is working as a Junior 3D Generalist at PIXOMONDO Stuttgart. He has participated in producing Midway, and some famous TV series such as The Mandalorian, Carnival Row and Bauhaus.

    Here’s the interview between Jeffrey Frias and Fox Renderfarm.

    Fox Renderfarm: Why did you enter Fox’s Got Talent? And how do you feel about winning the prize?

    Jeffrey: At that time, I just got started working on my job applications and I thought, why not try and join Fox's Got Talent for free views of my stuff to the public. Of course, the prize was a fine addition nonetheless and it helps me being motivated for my personal projects, knowing I won’t have a problem with rendering later on.

    Fox Renderfarm: What inspired you to come up with the idea of making the work Centaur?

    Jeffrey: I wanted to show that I knew how to get proportions right and that I had a decent understanding of anatomical modeling/sculpting.

    Fox Renderfarm: How long did it take you to finish the work?

    Jeffrey: The Centaur took me about a month to finish. It might have taken me way sooner than that, but during that time I went on vacation and also kept working on my other reel projects on an on-and-off basis.

    Fox Renderfarm: How long did it take you to finish the work?

    Jeffrey: The Centaur took me about a month to finish. It might have taken me way sooner than that, but during that time I went on vacation and also kept working on my other reel projects on an on-and-off basis.

    Fox Renderfarm: You used backlighting, and there is floating dust in the air, why did you use this combination? And how did you achieve the final result?

    Jeffrey: I’ve always liked adding backlighting to my projects and to make the hero objects pop out more. As for the dust, I just wanted to give the Centaur scene a bit more of some surroundings in addition to the ground.

    Fox Renderfarm: The details of the work are amazing, the muscle structure and the scars on the skin deliver a savage vibe, how did you create them? Any ideas behind them?

    Jeffrey: I’ve seen a lot of modeling reels and projects of graduates that had characters/creatures in them that were just way too smooth and had no details really.

    That’s exactly why I tried adding as many details to my Centaur as I could. As for the muscle structure, I had set my mind from the very beginning of this project that I wanted a strong, dynamic and savage warrior Centaur. I created most of the skin details in ZBrush and then added a few really small details and the blood in Substance Painter.

    Fox Renderfarm: And also the armor and the leather are pretty well-made, did you refer to any materials while making them? How did you achieve these textures?

    Jeffrey: I’ve looked at a lot of images of armors and decided that I wanted to make it in a gladiator kind of style. While making this, I kept looking at other reels too, and tried finding inspirations for texture types and what else I could add.

    Here I had my Centaur already positioned and blocked-out, refined and unwrapped the armor parts in Maya. Afterward, I brought it to ZBrush and added the damages.

    Lastly I textured them in Substance Painter.

    Fox Renderfarm: Which part of the artwork do you like the most, visually and production-wise?

    Jeffrey: I don’t really have any parts of the project that I really liked the most, but if I were to choose one, it would’ve been the torso. Just because it was very fun to sculpt this with a lot of trials and errors and because I learned a lot about anatomy while I was doing it.

    Fox Renderfarm: Did you meet any difficulties when creating this work? And how did you solve it?

    Jeffrey: There were a few small problems here and there but nothing I couldn’t fix with a simple search or question in forums. But the thing that overall gave me a hard time, was the anatomy for the horse.

    Fox Renderfarm: How long have you been in the CG industry? And how did you make the decision to step into the CG industry? Could you briefly tell us about the story of your education and career experience along your animation journey?

    Jeffrey: At this time, it would be around 11 months since I started working at PIXOMONDO.

    I’ve always had joy in making or drawing stuff. While I was still in high school, I didn’t really know what this job was called, so I didn’t really try and search for it, but after nearing my graduation I just happened to read a blog about it and from that moment on, I tried pursuing it.

    I was quite surprised when I started my studies for VFX, because it was unlike any school experience I had. I enjoyed every lesson we had and there was never any hassle or pressure to learn for an upcoming test or quiz. No one was forcing you but you, yourself was making you want to keep learning more stuff about 3D.

    Jeffrey Frias‘s artworks

    Fox Renderfarm: After graduated, why did you choose to join in PIXOMONDO?

    Jeffrey: When I finished my VFX school, Game of Thrones was still very popular and was a daily conversation topic for me and my friends. so when I got the chance, I tried applying to them immediately and fortunately I got the job.

    Plus, a good friend of mine from the same class at the VFX school was there too.

    Fox Renderfarm: What projects have you worked on in PIXOMONDO? Is there any unforgettable experience to share?

    Jeffrey: Right now I’ve got "Star Wars-The Mandalorian", "Midway", "Carnival Row" and "Bauhaus" on my list.

    The unforgettable experience was that my very first task was to model a really something, which had a really big part in the movie Midway.

    In addition to that, who wouldn’t be happy to have had the chance of working on Star Wars right from the get go after graduation as a freshling.

    Fox Renderfarm: What do you do to keep yourself inspired and improving yourself?

    Jeffrey: Everytime I see something great on the internet, I just add it to my personal list of "projects to do", which keeps me motivated on making new projects even while working all day long in 3D too.

    Fox Renderfarm: What do you think of Fox Renderfarm cloud rendering service? Would you share your experience with rendering with Fox Renderfarm?

    Jeffrey: It’s a really efficient render farm with one of the best support I have seen.

    During the time in which I had to render my stuff for my demo reel, I found myself not being able to use my school’s computers because other students were hogging all the other PC's.

    And since the deadline for our reels were coming close, I managed to render out all of my things in time with Fox Renderfarm, with just a simple upload and letting it render overnight and start compositing, while the others were still trying to find renderable PC's at school.

    Jeffrey Frias‘s artworks

    Fox Renderfarm: Any other things you want to share with CG enthusiasts?

    Jeffrey: During my time at my VFX school, I found it annoying that there were students who had also 0 experience as the rest of us who were just starting, but were so sure of themselves that they kept criticizing others and giving off tips that were not useful in any way.

    My advice would be, don’t constrain your thoughts on things because other students think that is the only way or the right way. Ask your teachers who know these stuff well.
