On The Shelves!

My local comic shop has copies of "The Story Of Inc" in the flesh! If you're in the Oakland CA area, visit Dr. Comics & Mr. Games for a flip through, they've been my loyal comic shop for 16 years!

Undermined!

Went through some Incredibles 2 books at the local bookstore and found a tiny 1 inch picture of the tunneler.

Incredibles 2

So Incredibles 2 came out this weekend (95% on rotten tomatoes!), and I wanted to say a few words. The first Incredibles was my first film at Pixar, and Incredibles 2 was my last film at Pixar, as I left in January after 16 years of service.

While I did a number of things on Incredibles 2, my biggest contribution was the giant drill vehicle the underminer uses. I helped design it, and then did 99% of the modeling and texturing of the vehicle, interior and exterior. While I don't have any specific stats, I seem to remember the modeling coming in somewhere in the couple of hundred thousand separate object mark, and the whole project took me 8 months to complete. Certainly the most challenging single model I have ever done, and I want to say huge thanks to Nathan Fariss, Josh West and Chris Burrows for basically handing me the vehicle and letting me do my thing. With all the pipes and rust, it was the perfect prop to end my Pixar career on.

Please go see this film, or if you've already seen it, please go see it again and again. Buy tickets and tell all your friends! I am proud of the film, proud of my team, and may Pixar continue to do the Incredible!

Oh No!

Oh no! What on earth has happened to Inc? You'll have to read the book to find out: http://www.neilblevins.com/books/inc/inc.htm

Bill Zahn modeled and textured the human model, then I replaced the hooded head with a photo of myself from the back (since we didn't have any hair on our 3d model), and then I made the robot and the environment was painted mostly in 2d.

Inc Alien Meeting 2


From "The Story Of Inc" Book project. A great example of a team effort, Gio Nakpil did the initial creature design, the final alien was modeled and textured by Mohammad Modarres, then I painted the environment, lit and composited the alien into the scene.
