Check out this haunting piece called "Death Penalty" created entirely in 3D for Amnesty International drawing inspiration from the Amnesty logo, a lit candle, Pleix (collaborating with Parisian VFX-house, Digital District) crafts a simple, elegant and haunting piece. (This spot does not necessarily reflect the views of TheCGBros, as our focus is primarily the artwork).
Surprisingly, this spot was done in CG with some minimal shot elements. The statues were all sculpted in CG and then deformed.
"Creating the texture of wax was relatively easy to render compared to simulating realistic deformations of wax," says Pleix. "CG software is great when you are making quick water splashes, but they were unusable to melt things very slowly. So we had to find many tricks to make it work, especially with the melting being the highlight of this project. We also did a number of facial scans which enabled us to create extra details on the faces. It was a challenge to the very end. "
