After several months of my ´beyond Photoshop explorations´ (and learning Nuke /Maya) I finally completed my 1st Matte painting Demoreel. Simple projects only (I am still very new to Nuke/Maya, a few months ago I did not even know what Nuke was, and had never ever touched Maya before) .. but at least .. finally, for now.

.. when talking about ´making still images move´ (& adding depth ..), here´s one of my recent quick tests ..

Turning 2D/still image (photo) into 3D ..

#Cinema4d, #25D (camera projection, particles, dynamics etc./Cinema4d; source image: stock/Fotolia)

.. long time no post from me ..
(no spare time for personal work /no projects of mine worth sharing, actually ..)

A lot has happened - and changed, over last few years ..
both in my personal and professional lives - but - even though it might not look like that (while experimenting with a lot of other fields, art & hand-made craft, meanwhile) - a few things have remained the same though -
I still love (and now trying to finally/again/hopefully get back to) Photoshop, digital imaging, photography, digital art, etc. ..
and/or ..
recently also trying to explore some other areas ´beyond Photoshop´ a bit, too .. trying to make my still images .. move :)
(motion, matte-painting /25D camera projection for matte-painting / Parallax effect for still imagery, VFX/compositing for film, film-making /video-editing, HDRi/360 imaging, motion tracking, time-lapse /stop-motion/ motion graphics, animation .. )

At the moment, still nothing worth to share,
but - hopefully soon /from time to time/, now I´ll finally have a chance to get back to personal projects, and/or to sharing some ´bits´ of my current ´explorations´, too, as I go ..
For those who might yet be interested ..
