Travels and Gear

Happy Holidays All

It's definitely been a crazy busy year for me, I've also done a tonne of travelling from exploring new places I've never been. I even made it across the other side of the world in Australia and explored almost the entire East coast in just under 2 weeks! Crikey!

I've also bounced back and forth to the US a couples times and also Italy besides one of my best friends wedding! 

Check out some of the Photography travels on my website.
I will be posting some from Australia soon. 

I'd love to save up and get a full frame camera eventually for taking some HDRI's and backplates. But for now, the current gear I've been travelling with are below...

 - Canon 70D

- Joby Gorilla Tripod for DSLR (If you just need the bottom and have the base already you can just get this one -

- Canon 50mm Lens

- Canon 10-22mm Lens for my wider angle shots

- RĂ˜DE VideoMic

What Have I been up to? BMW things

It's been a really long time since I've updated a new post on my blog. I've been super busy at my full time job. However had some down time and managed to do some lighting.

Here are my two new BMW's I was working on.

I used direct lighting on this shot. Trying to venture more into environments, so I completely built the garage from scratch. Rusty on my modelling skills. Working on some new environment stuff in my free time, coming soon! Compositing was done in Photoshop for a quick retouch. I still want to re-work on this again, particularly on the highlight front of the car and spend a bit more time on the environment.

In this BMW shot, I tried to have some fun with my lighting and to really test my skillset. I actually use indirect lighting technique, bouncing lights off of cards, no GI was used. Compositing was done in Nuke, and retouched a little in Photoshop.

For more of the latest updates, follow me on social media

As well as my website, I have my Behance Portfolio and Instagram you can follow and finally, I debated for a long time to set up a Facebook Page.

Grace Origins Storyboards

I hope some of you guys got to watch "Monty and the Runaway Furnace" at some of the amazing film festivals. A few of the questions kept getting asked is where did grace originate from?

Well, I spent a little time drawing these rough storyboards for "Grace Origins", hopefully the story answers a lot more questions. It's been a while for me storyboarding, so it's been fun. Enjoy.

The Road to Environments

It's been a pretty exciting weekend in LA for the Monty and the Runaway Furnace screening, I hope some of you got to watch the film or attend. I heard a lot of people really enjoyed it, which is awesome!

I have been busy learning ZBrush and environment workflows! ZBrush is something I never really got to spend much time in and is definitely a challenging learning curve. I found it quite frustrating to navigate in at first as it's not true 3D space.

I have some new projects underway once I have cleared these tutorials off my list! I have a few big environment projects to make and work on towards being an Environment Artist, which I am super excited on this journey. So here's what I've been making so far some rocks and leaves and log. This is from Jacob Norris' tutorial on gumroad! He is an amazing artist at Naughty Dog. Making assets have certainly been very fun process and I am enjoying a lot.

I shall also be learning Substance Designer and UE4 towards my career path. Don't worry I am not going to abandon lighting, I love it too much!

Don't forget to follow me on Twitter (@evavfx3d) for latest updates and tweets if you're not already! my NYC piece was one of my first environment pieces; however I want to make something that you guys can experience.
