We are happy to introduce to you our October 2015 Artist of the Month : Andrey Kobushenko from Russia.
Andrey has worked as an CG artist for the last 13 years: "My main job is art direction, rendering and lightning". He mentioned that most of what he´s creating is hyper realistic and he loves rendering fruits, vegetables and various liquids. "I try not to miss a single detail. I tried creating such a render no one ever thought of being CG". We can only agree: His work "Rasperry Day" is so detailed & realistic, you´re almost able to smell the sweetness of every single berry! So yummy!
"Raspberry Day" was created with 3dsMax and rendered with V-Ray, but according to Andrey it doesn´t really matter which software you use: "It´s whatever you like, there are tools to create CG of every complexity. The main thing is to see the picture and analyze it. You need to clearly understand what you want to create and never compromise!"
You can read a detailed article about the "Making of Raspberry Day" here.
Also check out his behanced gallery to learn more about the development process.
Andrey told us he´s just recently opened a studio called "MELT vfx " which will mainly focus on creating CG liquids. Check out his demo reel:
We wish you all the best and congratulations from the whole RebusFarm Team!

We are happy to introduce to you our Artist of the Month September 2015: Dušan Ković, a CG generalist from Novi Sad, a town in the northern part of Serbia. He created his bodacious work "Coffee Table" to push his lightning and shading skills further. He admited: "In the beginning, I never expected to push the realism that far, and I was really pleased with the result."
Dušan currently works in Eipix Entertainment as a lead animator in the cinematic team. But he is interested in the wide set of areas in the computer graphics. "My favourite area is rendering, texturing, shading and lightning, but I also do modeling, rigging and some basic fluid and particle simulations." He gives free rein to his creativity and doesn´t commit himself to a certain subject. "I create art from what is most inspiring for me at the moment. From robots, tanks, scifi to the nature and still life"
Check out his wide range of creativity yourself: https://www.artstation.com/artist/dusankovic
"My main workhorse is Autodesk Maya, mainly because of wast number things you can do within it and I find it most comfortable for work." Aside of Maya, he used Arnold as render engine, Zbrush for sculpting, Quixel Suite / Photoshop for textures, and After Effects for composting.

After our first Siggraph in Vancouver last year, we´ve been very curious about this years Siggraph in Los Angeles. It was a great convention and an exciting and successful exhibition. Following we would like to give you a short insight of what we´ve experienced at Siggraph 2015.
Human Render Node - Raffle
Besides giveaways like bags, yo-yos, luminous pens and renderpoint coupons we also presented our own creation, the "Human Render Node" at Siggraph 2015. Using a special device crank handle, the attendees had to render images with their own physical strength. Most of all timing was important. The 3 best highscores could win up to 1000 Renderpoints a day as well as a useful Powerbank. Unsurprisingly, the participants used very creative ways to beat each others highscores, came back, tried again and challenged eachother more and more. Both an impressing and sportingly challinging competition. But even if you didn´t make it to the "Top 3", you´d still have a chance to win Renderpoints. Amongst all other participants we raffled additional Renderpoints on 8GB usb flash drives.
Thank you all for participating!
We would like to thank some of our users for providing their work for rendering them on our "Human Render Node" at Siggraph. Thanks to Tom Stracke, Andy Lefton, Caue Rodrigues, Alesandre Jarek, Total Real, Jellyfish Collective...
Meet & Greet
Siggraph 2015 was a great chance to meet our partners, freelancers and companies that wanted to get to know us. We have had great and interesting conversations.
We´ve been very happy to meet our users personally and to talk in a relaxed and stress-free environment without any deadlines ;) Thanks to all who stopped by our booth and gave us feedback or just said hello!
Finally we also got to meet Andy Lefton! After a lot of email exchanges it was great to meet the creator of “Two Worlds” in person, a very cool and likable guy. Thanks for everything, it was very nice to meet you.
We would also like to thank "synapse" for helping creating our booth in Los Angeles. Thanks Tanya and thank you John for taking care of everything during the exhibition!
After these exciting impressions we have to get back to daily business...but we are already looking forward to the next Siggraph!

We are happy to introduce to you our Artist of the Month August 2015: "BigStudios" from Brazil, a CGI Studio with 8 years experience in creating 3D stills and animations for advertising agencies.
Check out their marvellous creations : www.bigstudios.com.br
The studio has a wide range of experience, from 2D & 3D illustrations and animations to photography and retouching. Their entry, a highly complex clock for the "Itau Bank", symbolizes the bank´s ability to deal with the variety of the financial world. "We love to produce high complex images! Rebus is helping us specially in these ones ... a service we truly admire!" Their creative team attaches great value to brainstorming: "We never start an image without planning and study, so each image we use to do hand drawing studies for concepts and color composition, before we work on the 3D model." The image was made with Maya and rendered at Rebusfarm.
They´ve also created a fantastic animation of the "Itau Bank" clock in which you can see how every little detail was brought to life in this wonderful composition.
If you want to be our next winner in the upcoming month September and win 250 Renderpoints , just visit our facebook page, upload one of your self-made 3D images and send us a personal message with your email address. We'll choose the best image and will contact the winner.
