This shot is my best work so far, in my opinion. I started it many months ago when I saw a dogfighting scene from The Force Awakens featured on The Foundry's show reel. I then used it as a reference for the entire shot, repurposing it as a WWII dogfighting scene. This shot is entirely CG.
This is a full CG composite that I have been working on for several months. It is inspired by Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Top Gun, Midway, and Devotion.
I was responsible for: rigging, animation, lighting, rendering, simulation, integration, matte painting, 3D card systems, etc.
