KitBashing with The Matrix 4 Conceptual Artist Emmanuel Shiu
by Jordan Hilliard
Spanning almost 2 decades, Emmanuel Shiu's career has taken him from Hogwarts to the Avengers Universe to Blade Runner 2049. We were thrilled to watch Emmanuel work with several of our kits in this episode, including Egypt, Art Deco, Industrial, Greebles, and Gothic, and demonstrate the true nature of a KitBasher by bashing all the kits together to create unique geometry and composition for this sci-fi train station piece. Emmanuel is currently working on the much anticipated The Matrix 4 and Thor: Love and Thunder and you can always find more of his work on his website.
After blocking in his scene in 3D, Emmanuel brings his final render into photoshop where he finishes off the piece with a paint-over.
To see Emmanuel put the finishing touches on his sci-fi train station, watch the timelapse of his final painting below.
Emmanuel has worked as a concept artist in the Entertainment industry since 2003 on titles such as Bladerunner 2049, Game of Thrones, Cloud Atlas, A Christmas Carol, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and much more. Want more Eman? Be sure to check out his ArtStation and Instagram.
