amazing spiderman visual effects breakdown

Finally got around to cutting together some select shots that I contributed to in the film “The Amazing Spiderman”.

For this show, I textured many buildings in a digital recreation of 6th Avenue New York City, painted, sculpted, and frayed the Lizard’s labcoat in a cool bullet ridden sequence, and covered every inch of hero radio tower with detail.

I also helped develop the look for a lizard transformation at the end of the movie, an environment that cut with plate photography, as well as many other digital characters and set pieces.

Green Lantern Porcelain Busts


Got these cool limited edition porcelain busts of the two main characters I texture painted in the Green Lantern movie.

The sculpting is very good and the hand-painting is very nice. Could use some more detail, but just being picky since I painted them already.

I especially like the ring base the busts stand on. Got a great deal at the Warned Bros website on Black Friday. $20 on sale from $84!
