LOS ANGELES – The KitBash3d store was launched at www.kitbash3d.com, delivering the first four in a series of 3D architectural asset libraries for CG artists and designers. Backed by many of the best artists in the industry, KitBash3d makes the process of creating CG environments faster, cheaper, and easier for concept artists, illustrators, and matte painters.
The video below shows the first four kits available at launch: Gothic, Art Deco, Neo Tokyo and Arabia; new styles will be added to the collection every month. Each kit is designed by a team of industry-leading concept artists and art directors and is specially designed for production with clean geometry, medium poly count, and pre-UV textures. All assets are application independent and integrate seamlessly into workflows with all digital content creation tools out of the box.
To help promote this launch, KitBash3d has partnered with Learn Squared, an online educational platform for artists, to present “The KitBash3d Festival”. The festival will feature demonstrations of KitBash3d projects broadcast live by industry veterans such as art director Ash Thorp (Ghost in the shell and War for the Planet of the Apes), conceptual artist Darek Zabrocki (Maze 3, Destiny 2) and artistic director Nick Hiatt (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) to Discover the Squared Twitch channel from September 13 to October 3.
