The Last Train, stefankang (3d)


Title: The Last Train

Name: stefankang

“Between the time the last train leaves and the first train arrives, the place changes: it’s not the same as in daytime.” - Haruki Murakami.
Fall 2016, final project for texturing integrating with Mari by the Foundry. It’s a 10 weeks intense class with Ryan Reeb from Zoic at Gnomon. From texturing to lighting and rendering nParticles for rain and sparks. it’s always so exciting to complete a full scene and make it pretty to tell a story. Been able to sit down with Matt Rosenfield learning some technique by using lighting to tell story is another big goodie! The beauty of Gnomon is all about sharing!

Software used: Mari, Maya, V-ray, Photoshop, Nuke

Info: Approaching a night drizzling scene, referencing train from travel town. There’s a story at every little corner. Wouldn’t reveal too much to spoilt everything! See if you can spot something with the 4K image above!
