    Fight COVID-19 With CG Art

    2020-04-10

    CG

    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!

    Honorable Mention - The Moment

    Roy Bou Samra will receive prizes:

    • Fox Renderfarm: $100 render coupon

    Artist: Roy Bou Samra

    Artwork Name: The Moment

    Software and plugins used: 3ds Max 2016, V-Ray 3.60.03, Photoshop CC 2017

    Caption: The concept of this image is mainly related to the history of the Easter egg.

    It started with Saint Mary Magdalene when she talked with Caesar about Jesus’ resurrection.

    She picked up a hen's egg from the dinner table to illustrate her point of resurrection but Caesar told her that it is impossible for a human being to return to life as it is impossible for the egg to turn red. At the moment, immediately the egg turned red in her hand. (The moment is represented in the picture when the egg started to turn red. That's why the name of the image is " The moment".

    The Romans, Chinese, Egyptians and Persians all cherished the egg as a symbol of the universe. (They are symbolized by the egg pieces surrounding the main egg).

    In this project, I tried to combine the present that we are living now (which is the black background in the picture), with the meaning of the Easter egg which gives us hope for the future ( in the black background there is no edges, no guidelines but there are two white spaces that represent hope).

    Sponsors

    Thanks to all the participants. We really appreciate your imagination and hard work. Meanwhile, A big thank you goes to our sponsors. Finally, we’d like to thank our jury revealing FGT3D ‘Easter Egg’ Challenge winners. Congrats to winners again!

    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.

    Street Musician Reindeer Made in Blender: Sprinkle Some Fun in Character

    2020-03-02

    Trending

    Art Competitions

    Speaking of reindeer, your first impression might be the ones pulling the sledge for Santa. Whereas, artists set their imagination free in the CGBoost “Reindeer” challenge which is sponsored by the TPN-accredited cloud render farm, Fox Renderfarm.

    Besides all the cute creatures made by the artists, there’s one that the audience can’t take their eyes off, a punk-style reindeer with one leg on the stool, playing his guitar and humming alone.

    You must want to know who’s the great mind behind, how he thought of the ideas making a street musician reindeer, what software and plugins he used, and how he made it possible step by step. Let’s introduce the creator, Dante Resendez Delgado, 3rd prize winner in the challenge. And his exclusive interview with Fox Renderfarm shares more than just his creation process. Let’s dive in and enjoy!

    • Dante Resendez Delgado
    • 3D Artist

    Fox Renderfarm: Hi, Dante! Thank you so much for accepting our interview. Could you please give a brief introduction about yourself?

    Dante: Hello there, thanks for this interview, my name is Dante Resendez Delgado I call myself on social media “Mycro Tr Ct”. I’m a Mexican 3D artist, born in Victoria city, and I live and work in Monterrey.

    I have been working for about 10 years as a 3D artist, and for about 6 years working as a 2D digital artist, doing graphic design and illustration. Most of my artworks are for advertising.

    In 2006, I had the opportunity to travel out of Mexico and live in Canada. Because I have the intention to learn 3D animation, that goal happened after two years when I went to Spain and learned 3D. It was a very difficult journey.

    Since then, I have been working in 3D for advertising doing a mix of 2D and 3D.

    Artworks by Dante

    Fox Renderfarm: How do you feel about winning the 3rd prize in the CG Boost “Reindeer” Challenge?

    Dante: So excited to win the challenge, I got the third place but I celebrated as I was winning the first prize. For me, getting that place was an honor, also having the chance to meet people who are better than me and have a strong background in the 3D world gives me more confidence.

    Participating in challenges pushes my work in a better way. I learned to work faster and learned new techniques. In this case, I was working with particles for the first time in Blender and depth of field, also some hair fur, Quixel Mixer and Graswald.

    Fox Renderfarm: The reindeer has a very strong characteristic. What’s your inspiration for this picture of the cute reindeer?

    Dante: My inspiration came from Vancouver, I’ve been there before and remembered my Granville walks listening to the music on the street where traveler musicians playing for tips and asking for changes to continue their traveling, some of them are really good ones, those rebel and free souls are really good inspiration topics.

    Fox Renderfarm: We found the texture of the reindeer quite sophisticated, and different parts have a different texture. Could you tell us the creative process of the reindeer?

    Dante: Yes I will. First, I had two words in my mind, do it simple and fast, I was only able to spend 6 days, no more than 8, because I have a full-time job. I could spend only nights, and Christmas vacation was coming. So I was making it easy on the planning, the idea, and also the production.

    I wanted the reindeer to look like a stuffed toy. I went for square pattern textures to make a flannel shirt, and I found a good texture on google for free, that was for the shirt. For the skin, I used a normal map of a fabric texture I found on CCO textures and put in the node just to add volume. And also I used hair fur on the skin to help the texture look better. On the jeans, I did almost the same, but there I just corrected the color of the diffuse textures.

    I did not complicate workflow because of the time, the most important thing for me was to have the color palette clear in my mind, that was the most important guide to lighting and texture as the scene for me.

    Fox Renderfarm: The lighting merges cold and warm together.How did you set the lighting? And any ideas behind that?

    Dante: Technically, I used 3 light areas and one point to support the backlight. Area lights let me have more control over the scene, easy to get contrast on areas. I also used a very easy HDRI on the strength I got from the HDRI heaven. In my setting renders, I used a volume scatter node connected to the world that let me blur the particles.

    I like to spend time playing with lamps, just play and see, if I like what I see that’s fine. For sure I’m always looking for good contrast and layers on the composition, also have in my mind what makes the sense on the character and the situation he is living on the scene. In this case, Reindeer is a nostalgic traveler character, a free soul who is going around the world with no worries. Some ideas came into my mind because my initial idea was to make a talented character who is discovered by a Santa Claus talent scout.

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

    Dante: It took me 6 to no more than 8 nights after my job.

    Fox Renderfarm: What software and plugins did you use?

    Dante: I used Blender 2.81 rendered with Eevee, I also used Graswald and Quixel Mixer textures for the floor and background, and some color corrections in Photoshop.

    Fox Renderfarm: When and how did you come up with the idea of entering the 3D industry?

    Dante: I was sure to start when I was a little kid, and that was just the idea to work in something related to art and entertainment, like animation or movies. I liked to watch cartoons like Hanna Barbera, Popeye, Looney Tunes... I always like to draw cartoons and I grew up with all that inspiration.

    Popeye the Sailor (Image via Google)

    Looney Tunes (Image via Google)

    Then I became a little older and I knew about a school called CalArts (California Institute of the Arts), then I found The Kubert School and VanArts (Vancouver Institute of Media Arts), they teach people how to draw comics and make animation movies. Wow!!! I remember sending letters written by hand in Spanish, asking for information when I was a teenager. But especially in 3D, it was when I saw Toy Story 1, that was the biggest inspiration and the first.

    Toy Story 1 (Image via IMDb)

    Fox Renderfarm: Could you share with us your education and work experience along the 3D journey?

    Dante: For sure, I was studying 3D animation in Barcelona on IDEC, the university of Pompeu Fabra, they have a program and teach you animation and 3D. Students end up doing a short film, like preproduction and production, and you learn a lot from it. But for some people who don’t know anything about 3D, if you are thinking about doing a short film in 3D, you have to be a very organized person and do a good planning, and there are more things to do if you wanna make it right and have good results, this is my personal opinion.

    I was studying really hard but I had a very failed result with my final project. That put me in another direction, I started to do more hard work, study and discipline myself to practice and improve my skills.

    Artworks made by Dante in 2009

    Experience in work, well, I started working as an illustrator during my study in graphic design. After my graduation, I kept working in the same direction, and during my free time, I worked on my own projects. I have two projects published by Pictoplasma (Berlin, 2006). The Pictoplasma Encyclopedia Character and Rabbit Essence poster. I also had the opportunity to collaborate on projects, some of which won prizes around the world. I did the concept art for the image of a school of design in Saltillo Mexico called The Digital Invaders, and that won so many prizes, one of which in Cannes Lions.

    Concept Art for The Digital Invaders School

    Fox Renderfarm: As an outstanding 3D artist, what do you do to keep yourself motivated and inspired?

    Dante: Thanks for that. It is really difficult to keep yourself motivated because in many ways you are alone, people will say, your work is really good sometimes, other times don’t. Actually, only you know where you wanna go with your work, and at the end, you have to be your own judge, how good you wanna be, what really matters is what you believe you can do, then you have to put action!!! And try to make good decisions, don't forget that one.

    Surround yourself with people who go in the same direction and who will understand your ideas even if you don't talk with them like, maybe you just follow them on Instagram, that's good!!! Because they will show you constantly what they are doing and you can be motivated watching what they are doing. That's my experience.

    Inspiration is everywhere if you wanna be a character designer you can be inspired in all kinds of art, like fashion, photography, architecture because everything has a sense and you can apply in your own work.

    Fox Renderfarm: Any artwork or anyone that inspires you in the industry?

    Dante: Tartakovsky!!! One of my favorites, I love his work in Samurai Jack!!! And what he tries to do in Popeye 3D movie, in comic art, Joe Madureira (Battle Chasers), I love his very unique style the same as Humberto Ramos (Crimson), Luis Vasquez (illustrator from Monterrey Mexico), and Juan Díaz Canales (Black Sad).

    Talking just about the drawing style, shape and color palette. Brian Froud, Concept Artist for Dark Crystal, you have to see his work, it is amazing, Daniel Lara is one of my favorites on 3D, everyone in Blender community knows who is, those artists are the very first ones who have been inspiring me.

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

    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

    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。
