LOS ANGELES — KitBash3d (www.kitbash3d.com) is a new 3D asset store that’s designed to makes the process of creating CG environments faster, cheaper and easier. The Website launched on September 12th with its first four 3D architectural asset libraries: Gothic, Art Deco, Neo Tokyo and Arabia. New styles will be added to the collection each month.
Each kit costs $199 and is designed by a team of leading concept artists and art directors. They are specifically built for production, with clean geometry, mid-poly counts and pre-UVed textures. All assets are application agnostic and integrate seamlessly into workflows with all off-the-shelf digital content creation tools.
To help promote the launch, KitBash3d has teamed up with online educational platform Learn Squared to present “The KitBash3d Festival.” The festival will feature live streamed KitBash3d project demonstrations from industry veterans such as art director Ash Thorp (Ghost in the Shell and War for the Planet of the Apes), concept artist Darek Zabrocki (Maze Runner 3, Destiny 2) and art director Nick Hiatt (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) on Learn Squared’s Twitch Channel (www.learnsquared.com/live from September 13-October 3). Register at www.KitBash3d.com for festival updates and to recieve a free sample kit.
“We're really excited to team up with Learn Squared to showcase our new kits,” says KitBash3d co-founder Maxx Burman, an art director and matte painter whose credits include Iron Man 3, Godzilla and Game of Thrones. “Learn Squared is an invaluable resource for the digital art community, serving constant inspiration and motivation, and we hope to do the same in our own way with KitBash.”
“As part of our launch, we wanted to shine a spotlight on some of the industry’s top professionals and bring them directly in touch with the global artist community,” adds KitBash3d co-founder Banks Boutté. “With the online festival, audiences can tune in live and interact with their favorite artists on-stage, demoing their unique creative processes.”
