This project began as an assignment developed during over a two-week period in the fall of 2020 for my Lighting for Animation class. Our task was to take a concept from a folder provided to us by our professor and each develop our own 3D versions of the scenes from scratch. This concept spoke to me because of my love of fantasy, and the original illustration was by Giovanni Silva, whose profile can be found here: https://giovannisilva.artstation.com/projects/e03XVb
After the quarter ended, I revisited the project and cleaned up some loose ends over the winter of 2021. I took forever to finally post it, but I thoroughly enjoyed this process. I utilized Maya, Zbrush, Substance Painter, and Photoshop extensively through this process.
