Tilt Brush was already having a big week. On Monday, the highly praised virtual reality creation app made its debut on the Oculus Rift after only officially working on the HTC Vive for almost a year. Becoming available to an entirely new audience of content hungry VR fans will certainly be a boost to Tilt Brush’s overall sales and mindshare in the VR world, but who would have thought the Rift launch would only be the second most interesting thing to happen for Tilt Brush this week?
The first is this:
Look at that. LOOK AT IT. Zoom in on that man’s FACE. Why? How? When? How again?
What you’re seeing is a commissioned work paid for by Fox Sports 1 and completed by the VR artist George Peaslee. As Peaslee explains it on his official Sketchfab page: “I was hired by FS1 to make logos for all of their shows leading up to Super Bowl 51. Here’s one of the portrait pieces I did of ‘Skip and Shannon Undisputed’.”
Peaslee has been working as a VR artist for some time now and is one of the young medium’s most dedicated and talented innovators. He was featured on our site last week for his masterful VR recreation of a famous French masterpiece, and his work for FS1 also makes him one of the first commissioned Tilt Brush artists in the world.
We’re excited to see what else Peaslee will be coming up with in the months and years ahead. Luckily though, you won’t have to wait that long to see more incredible VR art from other talented creators. Check out these other amazing works below:
