4 Adding de­tail

ImagineFX - - Workshops -

At this point, the Kirin leaves the art dept and is now in VFX pro­duc­tion. The fi­nal model is be­ing built and plates from the shoot, with light­ing ref­er­ences, be­ing used. The head is still with­out a de­fin­i­tive de­sign, so I con­tinue to play with ideas, paint­ing im­ages in 2D with Pho­to­shop over ren­ders of an in­com­plete model. A dragon look is be­ing dis­cussed, along with some lion in­flu­ence. Some el­e­ments are locked: the eyes, horns, mane and bar­bles (those cat­fish fleshy whiskers). But other el­e­ments are still in flux. I paint in a very de­tailed and photo-real way, which helps the client vi­su­alise how it will look as a fi­nal as­set in shot.
