I was lucky enough to be able to help the group on the film "Spurs out" from ESMA Toulouse, where I took care of all the dragons in terms of sculpting, texturing, shading and lookdev in a USD pipeline.

Here are a few shots from the film featuring the dragon

Here's a quick breakdown of how I worked as a Lookdev artist on a USD pipeline

It was a first for me to work on Solaris/Renderman, and I was really happy to be able to practice this brand new lookdev mode, which taught me a lot about cleanliness and organization on a project.
The magniability of settings and scenes was very natural, and I was able to adapt to the group's pipeline to release a man asset as quickly as possible.

I'd like to thank the whole group for the great working atmosphere despite the rush at the end of production, and I hope they enjoyed working with me during these 4 months of production !!

Thanks for taking the time to look at my post and thanks again to the whole group, the film will be available on the ESMA youtube channel in about 1 year's time.
