Los Angeles, CA, Sep 12, 2017 — The KitBash3d store launched today at www.kitbash3d.com delivering the first four in a series of 3D architectural asset libraries for CG artists and designers. Backed by several of the industry’s top artists, KitBash3d makes the process of creating CG environments faster, cheaper and easier for concept artists, illustrators and matte painters.
This video: https://youtu.be/Y3ar8wR7H5o showcases the first four kits available upon launch: Gothic, Art Deco, Neo Tokyo and Arabia; new styles will be added to the collection each month. Each kit is available at a cost of $199, and is designed by a team of industry-leading concept artists and art directors, 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 this launch, KitBash3d has teamed up with Learn Squared, an online educational platform for artists, 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, http://www.learnsquared.com/live from September 13-October 3.

“We're really excited to team up with Learn Squared to showcase our new kits. 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,” said KitBash3d co-founder Maxx Burman, an art director and matte painter whose credits include Iron Man 3, Godzilla, Game of Thrones and many others.
“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. With the online festival, audiences can tune in live and interact with their favorite artists ‘on stage’ demoing their unique creative processes,” added KitBash3d co-founder Banks Boutté.
Testimonial quotes from The KitBash3d Festival Artists
“KitBash3d is the resource we’ve all been waiting for,” said Learned Squared co-founder and veteran designer Ash Thorp.
“I’m twice as fast now, and my designs are twice as good,” said Nick Hiatt, art director (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) who has already developed concept art using the kits, “I’m looking forward to showing what I’ve learned so far.”
“This is the ultimate tool for concept artists, illustrators and matte painters.” says character designer and ZBrush World Champion Justin Goby Fields who will be showcasing how KitBash3D can help creature artists better showcase their designs.
Matte painter and art director Maxx Burman is passionate about letting artists ‘create without permission’, and co-founded Kitbash3d to allow artists to work faster, at a higher level, and with more focus on the creative process. After fruitless searches for stock architectural 3D models to expedite concept art creation in his own work, Burman decided to build sets himself that fill a void for many artists, and joined forces with director/producer Banks Boutté to launch KitBash3d. Kitbash3d provides 3D assets for creating CG worlds and launches with four styles: Gothic, Art Deco, Neo Tokyo and Arabia, and will expand with new asset collections released every month.
