Mock Scientific American cover



I explored the topic through several sketches and compositions. The goal for these sketches is to communicate the future potential of this new flooring technology as a sustainable energy source for urban cities. With guidance from Prof. Dryer, I decided on a concept and refined the sketch for the modelling stage.

3D modelling


After finalizing my sketch, I started building assets in Autodesk Maya. These assets included building human characters which were rigged for easy manipulation. 



Final renders were brought into Adobe After Effects for compositing and animating.
