  13. OrangeAnimation 19/12/2017

    Yes truly amazing work too bad most people have this hate towards CGI nowadays, i see on most youtubers even though they have no clue how it's made, most of them think it requires no skill and it involves just one programmer typing code.
    They have no appreciation for anything and don't realize that artists digitally sculpt ( just as skillful as traditional sculpting but faster), digitally texture(just as skillful as drawing and painting but faster) and animate the characters plus the VFX side and the rendering side, i guess it a common trait not to appreciate technology and take everything for granted.

    Honestly CGI has never looked convincing and still doesn't. Even with the enormous advances in lighting, texturing, animation, physics, and overall graphical power, we just can't achieve 'true' realism.

    What makes reality in its totality look real? We are definitely missing something.

    • OrangeAnimation 09/05/2018

      Because the key factor and the last piece of the puzzle is difficult to erase – knowing it's not real before hand. When we know it was fake our mind starts to see it that way. There are a lot of invisible effects that go unseen in vfx.

  24. OrangeAnimation 19/04/2018

    i forgot how much i fucking loved this movie

  25. OrangeAnimation 04/06/2018

  27. OrangeAnimation 07/10/2018
