By day Dusan can be found working as lead cinematic artist at Eipix Entertainment, but like any good artist, his free time is also spent creating images. For Morning Delight, he abandoned his usual layer-based workflow and instead opted for a nodebased workflow, taking advantage of the versatility it offered him. Over four months he got to work on his image, taking enjoyment from the process of texture painting and lighting.
Dusan’s method for building an image involves a good amount of prep work, gathering references for the mood, lighting and objects and testing various compositions. A series of simple shapes then follows, enabling him to ensure everything is in the right position. After that, he works on the assets in detail and individually, so they can be referenced in the master scene. Then the lighting is established, the scene rendered, then composited and finally published.
