Pixar's RenderMan team is holding a texturing and lighting competition, which closes on May 22, 2019, called the "Rustic Cabin" Art Challenge, in which competing artists were provided a scene by the Pixar team. Our objective was to tell a story through textures and lighting.
In my composition, I used the Pixar film UP to tie into the Rustic Cabin set. I felt Russell's (UP's main character) Boy Scout persona would fit and connect well with the UP story by saying this cabin shared memories of Russell's, proud, grandmother. We were allowed to add in our own small 3D models if it helped support the story, so I built a variety of small props that belonged to Russell in the film UP.
In my design, I did comprehensive research on 1950s and 60s graphics and advertisements to get ideas and make my own unique graphics for some of the shelf items.
The Disney fan in me; also included several Easter egg pieces throughout the creation, which gives solid nods to Pixar and Disney works.
