2013, the year of the special effects film?

Discover the Artist Within… at the 2D – 3D Showdown!

Discover the Artist Within… at the 2D – 3D Showdown!

What sets 2D and 3D visual effect artists apart? Most would say, not a lot. Both teams of artists are necessary in the creation of stunning CG visuals. But have you ever wondered why someone would choose one path over another? What makes the ultimate Compositor or 3D VFX artist?

To Whom it May Inspire!

To Whom it May Inspire!

Something Pixar are always great at is sharing their wealth of wisdom with fellow artists. Having come across this wonderful snippet of inspiration the other day, I felt it needed to be shared with all you compositing and VFX artists out there. It’s important to know that even the guys at the top have a tough time!
