The reel kicks off with at atmospheric animation from matte painter and CG generalist Devon Rush: a previous Grand Prize winner at Gnomon’s Best of Term Awards.
It is followed by over seven minutes of digital art ranging in style from the photorealistic to the fantastic, in fields including visual effects, animation, game development, and character and environment design.
In many cases, you can catch a glimpse of how the art was created, with timelapses, model turntables and animation breakdowns revealing the hard work that went into the final renders.
With so much amazing art, it’s unfair to pick individual highlights, so grab a coffee and dive in for yourself.
