This project was something of a dream come true for me. I’m a huge military aircraft geek and had always wanted to work on some form of flight sim, so when Volv Interactive got in touch to see if I’d like to work with them on Air Combat Online I couldn’t believe my luck. They needed a whole host of concept work creating from 3D action scenes to branding and game UI.
The 3D element was so much fun! I was provided with the aircraft models and textures and was tasked with creating the scene you see here. This involved a lot of different scene setups, composition, rendering work and 2D/3D compositing to create the final scene you see here. My goal from the outset was to make this feel like a manic dog fight set way up above the clouds where the light is so bright that everything almost becomes white. Really pleased with the end outcome!
