“This is a personal project I started back in March 2018 and finally finished now end of June 2018.
I’ve always wanted to do a western and was briefly working on a movie that was put on hold, I had only worked for 3 days but since I love the subject so much I kept on going on my spare time and changed the look of it for a frontier town in Montana in the late 1800s during the gold rush… perhaps Eureka.
The images were rendered with Vray, ground sculpted in Mudbox with 4 UDIM tiles, a few fabric simulations in Marvelous Designer and some minor Photoshop touch ups at the end.
The scans of people and dogs were done in Canada by gravityb.com and he was been a part of my most current concept works in the film industry.
It is impossible to find period scanned people (or futuristic) so you have to custom make them.
I was very fortunate that his good friend Mark Murias is a vintage clothes collector hence the fantastic wardrobe for this project or any turn of the century scenarios.”
