Enchanted Mushroom Crystal

Enchanted Mushroom Crystal - student project

Here's my exercise from the video lesson "Portfolio - Part 1" exercise I suggest you try!

I wanted to abstractly mash together the concepts of geometric and organic shapes. This is what I came up with.

I created this in Autodesk Maya, which I teach courses on how to use that software, then I used Nuke and After Effects for compositing. I'm thinking of making a short course and teach how to do a simple composite in Nuke with this scene. Would you be interested to learn that?

Please try the exercise out for yourself, use this as inspiration, juxtapose two themes or concepts and make something! Share it in the 'Your Project' tab of this course. I can't wait to see what you create!
