I love the post production side of 3D. This “Making of” by Santi Sanchez from TRESDE – Modelado Digital & Render studio is a good example of using basic models as a basis to create a great image. Perhaps this could be considered more of a photo manipulation rather than a 3D image alone but Santi Sanchez’s workflow is still really interesting.

I rarely come across any Oil and Gas 3D visuals that I find captures the immense detail and scale of an oil installation / vessel without sacrificing the overall quality in texture and lighting. Check out Polar Media, a small independent production company based in London producing films & 3D animation for TV, corporate and the music industry. These guys really know their stuff.
Construction had recently begun on a developement that will be known as London Bridge Quarter. The area will include what will be London’s tallest building once completed in 2012. Renzo Piano is the architect behind the design having made the initial concept and sketches on the back of a restaurant menu. The design has since come a long way and once building is complete, it will prove to be a prominent landmark in London’s architectural history.
“London Bridge Quarter is a spectacular riverside development that establishes new standards for modern working environments. The unique mixed-use design and vertical gardens will enhance occupiers’ creativity, efficiency and productivity.”

Design agency Uniform, have produced many visuals as well as a few animations illustrating the skyscraper when it is complete. Most of the visuals can be seen on the Shard’s site http://www.shardlondonbridge.com/.
As Virgin Galactic prepare to unveil SpaceshipTwo today, I thought it would be appropriate to remind you of how amazing some of the visualisations are and how they pushed the idea forward so that it would one day help it become a reality. Our favourite visual created by Vyonyx, is of the spaceport which is currently being built in the desert of New Mexico.
