Behind The Magic: Ale Barbosa

Welcome to Episode 8 of Behind The Magic: A show made by CG artists for CG artists, featuring Senior Environment Artist at RodeoFX, expert fantasy world builder, and longtime Clarisse fan, Ale Barbosa.

In this episode, we go behind the scenes to learn more about Ale’s background in the VFX industry, why he chooses Clarisse for creating epic CG environments, and his workflow for creating some of our favorite projects of his made with Clarisse.

Learn more about how he uses Clarisse to create his signature otherwordly scenes as Ale walks us through his recreation of an environment from Lord of the Rings ‘Rings of Power’, which Ale worked on at RodeoFX. Shares his Clarisse tips and tricks and details of his lighting, rendering and volumes workflow.

Ale describes how Clarisse lets him focus on the artistic side of his work, rather than the technical. In his upcoming course with Domestika, he plans to show other artists the power Clarisse can bring to their workflow. Ale’s course will focus on Fantasy World Building for industry beginners, emulating professional studio workflows, including Clarisse, Houdini, Maya and Nuke.

Ale’s work is some of the most striking we’ve seen made with Clarisse. If you’re looking to brush up on your fantastical environment building skills, you’re in luck! Ale is your Clarisse artist to go to.
