Star Wars: The Old Republic – E3 2010 Cinematic Trailer

Category : Blur Studio, Inspiration · No Comments · by Nov 9th, 2010

Here is yet another awesome trailer for the upcoming game Star Wars: The Old Republic by BioWare. The makers of this beauty is – of course ;) – my all time favourite studio; Blur Studio.

“The Battle of Alderaan. The Republic’s gravest hour. In the years before the signing of the Treaty of Coruscant, the Sith Empire sought to crush the Republic’s morale by destroying Alderaan. Check out one of the pivotal battles of this conflict in the second cinematic trailer created for E3 2010.”

Awsome Particle Effects synced to music!

This is just amazing! Probably the coolest use of particles I’ve ever seen… or something like that. Matthias Müller is the genius behind this and it is absolutely brilliant!

It is done in 3ds Max with Particle Flow and the following plug-ins; FumeFX from SitniSati, Particle Flow Tools: Box #3 Pro by Orbaz and renderd with Krakatoa from Prime Focus.

Check out some other cool stuff Müller has done here:

One day I will be able to create awesome things like this, just you wait and see! ;)

Cheers!

Animation Backgrounds

Category : Inspiration · No Comments · by Aug 31st, 2009

As you probably noticed by now you can find all kinds of thing on the internet and I’ve recently found a blog that I found to be really inspiring. The old Disney films are truly works of art and they are beautifully animated. But other then that I’m also very fond of the backgrounds. The backgrounds are really beautiful pieces of art by them self, unfortunately you perhaps don’t think about them too much because you are focusing on all the animated action. However, believe it or not, I found a blog that is entirely devoted to animation backgrounds! It is really, really nice to just sit and watch these pictures and take in all the details. You should take a look at;  http://animationbackgrounds.blogspot.com/

Here are some of my favourite highlights, from the film Pinocchio.

Enjoy!

Pyrats
Brilliant short animation set in the Golden Age of Piracy, brilliant animation and interesting characters. I’ve heard some rumours that it might be turned into a feature film—that would be awesome!
