Viewconference 2012 workshops

Published on

So, I'm back from the Viewconferences 2012 ( read previous blog post to know more about ).

I had an amazing time.

It was my third Viewconferences, and I met many brillant directors and artists from the best studios and CG companies.
Many thanks to every one who participated to the workshops or went to met me.
Also many thanks to the organisators / staff and live traducors.

Here under is a resume in picture of what happened :

Congratz to the ToS artist Francesco and Nicolo for the good presentation they prepared.
During the presentation ; ToS get screened , and a live render of Blender was made.

During the last day workshop, on my left the translator Eva Verstraete.
I asked to 3 participants who came to almost all workshops to choose a color and an animal to set the theme.
It ended with : Lizard-Green , Unicorn-DeepBlue , Owl-Violet
And thats how the creature Griblue was born.

Krita workshop ( talking composition, layer, B&W ) , krita workshop ( detailing the character ) , Gimp+Gmic workshop ( generative effect / deformation / color fix / snow, rain / etc... ) , Illustration demo ( a full scene of a desert elf ) , Character creation demo ( Griblue the creature )

I hope to be around next year too !

Hello! I just stop by to say that you are always a great inspiration! Like you, I try to use free softwares to create images (mainly GIMP, but also a bit of Inkscape/Blender) and your blog is a really good ressource. Thanks a lot for sharing all this! :)

@Matou : Thanks for the feedback , I hope not a lot of ressources are outdated. I try my best to maintain the over 100 articles and 2000 comments on my freetime. xD Next step : having a tag system for sorting CC-By , Cc-By-Sa , CC-By-ND-NC content. All an adventure.
