Vitaly Bulgarov’s Black Phoenix Project. 10 Days of Mechs.

by | Mar 13, 2013 | 0 comments

You likely know of Vitaly Bulgarov from his incredibly detailed work as a 3D artist, Gnomon workshop tutorials or the images of his characters and concept design that create a stir across many a CG site. Well, it seems his latest project is no less detailed and no less likely to create a stir. Picked up by websites and forums in Japan, the renderings created in KeyShot were so realistic, it spread throughout the interwebs and twitter-verse described as new military technology from the US. It was rather, an image of the Utility/Infantry bot from Vitaly’s Black Phoenix project.

Black Phoenix Project

Vitaly has recently put together a new website to feature his work. The first visuals up for viewing is his Black Phoenix Project, a collaboration with photographer Maria Skotnikova who created the backplates and HDR environments.

Black Phoenix is a fictional military corporation that manufactures robots in a not-so-distant future. The idea is creating an album that would be full of designs that could represent a whole line of products from utility and semi-civilian drones to multi-purpose mobile weaponry systems and vehicles.

This exercise became “10 Days of Mech”, creating one Mech a day, start to finish with no prelim sketches. With the rich detail and great lighting, they certainly look real. Unfortunately, the only place we’ll see these robots and drones flying around is the internet. You’ll want to hop over to his site to see more shots and more of the incredible detail he puts into these images.
