Sherwin William : Safari
3D Artist, BUCK Design, Inc., Sherwin Williams, “SAFARI”, tv & web commercial, NY, 2017
TASKS: design, previs, props modeling, endtag lighting and compositing.
I am very honored as a young CG artist, I get to work on this Sherwin spot with a lot of talents at BUCK.
I was in charged of the endtag lighting scene. Here is the breakdown.
Luckily, I also got some opportunities to work on the low-resolution model of the safari animals.
For the elephant, our 3D artist Elijah Akouri design the structure first, then I finalized the model.
Below are two concept art exercises I did base on Arvid Volz's sophisticated model.
In the production, we were exploring various kinds of technique to build the mountains and grass in the back. Here are some fun works from the process.
