ANIMATION FILMAKER | CG ARTIST

Kyoto University TVC – Making of

I like this not so much for the big eyes anime characters but the aesthetics of abstraction. The video shows you how your choice of colours for the diffuse, form shadow/cast shadow and specular highlights can harmonize the composition of an image that would otherwise look like a dead photograph.

Besides, the technique of achieving the terminator line in the lighting has always been a tricky process for 3D production in this style.

Nevertheless, don’t be drowned by the technical process… art fundamentals always precede technique.
