|San Andreas (2015)|
The earthquake disaster movie starring The Rock is still a blockbuster hit and has now earned $414.2 million worldwide. It's become the highest-grossing disaster film of all time. Part of the success of the film has been the incredible visuals of the destructoin of L.A. Method VFX Supervisor Nordin Rahhali said, "The Los Angeles sequence was a huge challenge in terms of the scale and the complexity of what was needed. We had full CG environments where everything from high rises to trees are collapsing and everything needed to look photo-real and behave realistically, even down to the type and behavior of the smoke clouds." One of the artists that helped create those environments was artist Christian Lorenz Scheurer.
Christian Lorenz Scheurer is a professional concept artist who's worked on big budget films like Divergent (2014), Man of Steel (2013) and (1997).Click on the images to enlarge.
