3D Computer Graphics — Transformers
CGI & VFX Showreels: ILM “Transformers 3” by Brad Kinley
Talking about three dimensional computer graphics art, Transformers series must be one of the masterpieces. The 165-minute movies are mostly about intricate giant robot actions. It is extremely data-heavy behind the scene. The artwork starts with a lot of design and photoshop in 2D. Then they producers turn the 2D artworks into a 3D characters and built all its little pieces little by little. For example, Optimus has over 10000 pieces in him and every single piece in him has to modeled correctly. For me, the whole movie is like a collection and every single robot is like a piece of 3D computational artwork. With all the structures, colors, animations and etc come together, the robots become realistic on the screen.
