Pixar – Render Farm

Fun Minecraft style illustration

Growing relationships

This project was another collaboration with our friends at Pixar for their Renderman University. We created this light hearted imagery to balance out a very technical tutorial about render farms.

Render farming

Render farms, just like the hulking monstrosity we have here at Bigman, are essentially a collection of computers that boost processing power and speed up the rendering process; a must have for CGI. Our illustration is a little render farm joke for those CGI geeks out there, creating a literal render farm with cubes reminiscent of retro style computer graphics.

Cultivating images

We generated the 3D wheel barrow and pixels digitally and were then able to retouch an existing photograph to integrate the digital elements into the background.
