Volkswagen Nutzfahrzeuge

Amarok

Our very first FULL CG production for the all new VW Amarok. The environment was build from scratch, from concept & design to the look & feel and the final production ready asset! We used Maya with Vray, Zbrush for highres details and Mari for texturing. All 30 shots were then composed in Nuke.

 

All images were rendered with rndboxx.com. Thank’s Robert!!

Lidl

2015 campaign

Creature character we did for Lidl. It’s not a hero shot and that prominent but I think worth to share it. We used Zbrush for the mesh and mari for texturing. Lighting, shading and animation in maya with Vray and AE did the rest.
