OK! Well, I could go and post some of the demo reels that I’ve watched over and over and over again at some point in the past. @imbueFX , @alex.underhill , Dave Samuel… so on. Folks who are seniors in the craft that we already know kick ass. But… where is the fun in that? This person is no longer, as far as I’m aware, in Realtime VFX but instead has moved on to 2D/3D Animation. It’s also one of the earliest demo reels I bookmarked and even now find this VFX demo reel of his to be rather… inspiring.
So here the 2012 VFX Demo reel of Alexander Savchenko. These were made for a MMO game called Fragoria.
Isn’t that just… absolutely lovely.
EDIT: WOOPS! Well… that’s what I get for posting before I look at the submissions. @yunus posted this one already. Oh well. As a compilation prize then, I should note here that if you go to san-ooo.livejournal.com/9106.html you can see some simple polycount/map breakdowns.
