Layla I created this piece using Maxon’s Cinema 4D and Adobe Photoshop CS6 for minor post-production adjustments. Utilising C4D’s Mograph and hair simulator to render the fur and grass allowed me to achieve a realistic result. The final piece was rendered to A1 and professionally printed and framed. The most challenging aspect of this piece was the fur and grass, I spent a lot of time adjusting the thickness, clump, twist and colour to get it to look just right and give it an almost fantasy, dream-like feel.
Note To Self: Don’t Die This piece was inspired by a favourite musician of mine, Ryan Adams. I textured the text using various images and colours derived from some of his most famous songs. I nearly always begin a piece with the aim to output in large format which means putting a lot of pressure on my iMac but the end result more than makes up for it.
Harsh Reality This is one of my most recent 3D typography pieces taken from the lyrics of Paolo Nutini’s song ‘Iron Sky’. Again, using Cinema 4D’s mograph tools I created the text and played around with the composition before texturing and lighting. The other artefacts within the piece were also modelled and textured from scratch. Texturing using high reflectance channels can really take it’s toll on the speed of your workflow so it’s always best to get the basics right long before you even think of hitting the render button."
