Children's Book Style Replication

  • Final Image
  •        This was a 3D modeling project that required me to create a scene of a children’s storybook in Autodesk Maya. I was to duplicate the art direction of the book while taking an artistic license to create a new scene that could potentially fit into the book. Through this project I demonstrated both my modeling capabilities using the Maya program, and my aptitude to be creative.

  • Lighting Rig; The scene was litten with a directional light pointing at a giant sphere. The sphere acted as a reflective panel that bounced off it's surface creating a nice soft light. The sun was a seperate sphere, textured to look as if it was lighting the scene.

  • Texturing: Instead of texturing every individual object in the scene to create a colored pencil like style, I simply threw a translucent panel in front of the camera and colored it with a colored pencil like brush, imitating the color pencil look present in the book.
