3D Artist - - FRONT PAGE - Car­rie Mok,

When we first saw Agent 327: Op­er­a­tion Bar­ber­shop back in May 2017, we were ab­so­lutely floored by the qual­ity of the an­i­mated short. The mod­els, an­i­ma­tion, rig­ging, en­vi­ron­ment, light­ing, scene com­po­si­tion and just about ev­ery­thing else in­volved was un­de­ni­ably al­ready Hol­ly­wood qual­ity. What was more im­pres­sive was that any­body at home could tech­ni­cally achieve the same cal­i­bre – there were no se­cret tools in­volved. No, it was all Blender, which is of course free for any­one to down­load and start learn­ing. We’re so ex­cited for you to read about how this fan­tas­tic short was achieved, and hope you will get in­spired to cre­ate your own high-end CG piece with the ex­act same tools over on page 24.

Else­where, we’re dis­cov­er­ing the se­crets be­hind in­cred­i­ble game cin­e­matic prow­ess with Digic Pic­tures on page 44. We’re also learn­ing the art of Cinema 4D in our spe­cial tips guide, and how to mas­ter some of its new­est fea­tures in Cinema 4D R19. Mean­while, Maya 2018’s Bifrost Oceans also gets a look in, and we get to grips with Ubisoft-qual­ity Sub­stance De­signer tech­niques from se­nior tex­ture artist Jonathan Be­naï­nous. En­joy the is­sue!
