“Here’s looking at you, kid!” Sergey Buravtsov, our October 2019 3D Artist of the Month, takes us on a spiritual journey to the great plains of Northern Asia to meet ‘The Shaman’. Rich in expressiveness and ornate details, the elderly nomadic mystic greets the viewer with an equally captivating and knowing gaze.
While we’re not aiming to dispel the magic, we just had to find out more about the man behind the image. We sat down with Sergey to discuss his approach to character design, the importance of visual storytelling and the shamanistic lifestyle.

In everyday life, we’re always prone to lose sight of the wonders of the world around us. In our business, for example, it is easy to forget the pure and simple visual joys of 3D artwork. Thankfully, every once in a while, a piece such as Guave Motion’s ‘Economy is Care’ animation comes along and rekindles this childlike delight. An explainer video with a serious message at its core, the Swiss studio created a world so rich in charm and detail, you can’t help but get drawn in.
In our interview, 3D artist Andreas Tanner talks about visualizing abstract concepts, managing hundreds of assets and models and putting a twist on traditional claymation.

The beauty of our community spotlight is that we get to feature CG artists at different points in their respective careers: from experienced industry veterans to emerging talents. Mojtaba Hatami, our September 2019 3D Artist of the Month, is a self-described archviz amateur. For the last two years, he has been steadily honing his CGI skills in his free time. The recently published images are amateurish only in the sense that no immediate professional relationship prompted their creation. That is, not yet at least, since his passion and ability is an obvious sign of what might be the start of a promising career.
Check out our interview to find out more about Mojtaba’s motivation as an aspiring archviz artist and his approach to CG as a design language.
