Artist's Comment
About Me: 
I am Oli, a CG generalist based in Paris. Although I love making still images for practicing 3D techniques, my main objective and passion is to make movies, both 3D animated or filmed with VFX.
After finishing the rendering of the “Advanced Guiding Unit”, I started shooting my first short movie, currently in post-production stage. All the VFX of this short will be done with Blender, by far my favorite 3D software for its intuitive and straightforward workflow.
 
About "Advanced Guiding Unit:"
Advanced Guiding Unit is a personal project I made to practice hard-surface modeling techniques.
I started sculpting several rough concepts until I found a shape I like. I then retopoed it to get a clean primitive shape and modeled further to get secondary shapes, using Blender's efficient modeling tools. I tried to keep at this stage a clean topology as much as possible using subdiv techniques. I finally added the tertiary details using Booleans operations.
This workflow is brilliantly explained by talented Gleb Alexandrov and Aidy Burrows in their Hard Surface Modeling tutorial.
