Fantastical Cake

For one of my tasks, I created a fantastical cake. Last week, I showed our class the props that I considered buying. One consists of stylized desserts. I asked the class what the fantastical cake should look like. Based on feedback, they wanted eyeballs, tentacles, and particle effects. I incorporated all three. I started off […]

Additionally, the aliens’ most essential technology begins to disappear. The next day, the aliens find a group of humans who they befriend. The humans give the aliens […]

Pre-Production

For my midterm, I want to create a virtual production about a virtual production. First, the main actor will be walking on a tightrope between two buildings in New York City.

The space for my map, however, is a little bit limited. I thought about creating a new map altogether for my robot baptism. I also experimented with material. I enjoyed […]

Group Brainstorm World

For this week, I created a world in which a robot baptism takes place. I sought to create a lot of hills, heavy fog, and a pool of water. For the atmosphere, I desired a creepy tone. I constructed a steel church and added other architecture. The modern objects contrast with the natural environment.
