Check out the amazing showreel of Wirginia Romanowska – lead VFX artist at id Software.
It’s kind of hard to figure out if iD Software is more of the technological company or a game company. They are making some amazing games for sure and DOOM is one of them. Yet, they also build some astonishing technology, breaking the barriers of game optimization and making DOOM run with huge FPS on PS4 and other consoles.
One of the coolest things about DOOM was obviously the amazing set of VFX. A lot of them were done by the lead VFX artist Wirginia Romanowska from id Software. Most recently she published her showreel, demonstrating some of the coolest effects she did for the project.
Wirginia worked on a bunch of games in addition to DOOM, including Watch Dogs, Assassin’s Creed 3, Split/Second and a game on ‘Pirates of the Caribbean – At the World’s End’. She works with Maya,3dsMax, RealFlow, Photoshop, After Effects and Houdini!
