HIV 3D Sketch for AutoPack assignment

HIV 3D Sketch for AutoPack assignment

Last year, CG Society had a contest that involved the Autopack plugin and bringing the HIV recipe into a 3D application. Artist from a wide range of fields got their hands dirty and resulted in some fantastic entries. Our animation class is having the same assignment that will hopefully show Autodesk that this is a vital tool for our career field.

This is my 3D sketch of the virus entering the cell. I am thinking of having a more zoomed in shot but keeping with a large landscape field. I wanted to use red to highlight the injection of the capsid within the cell. Of course, I will have more surface proteins imported via Autopack, but I wanted to give everyone an idea of what approach I will be taking. I just bought Zbrush, may the experimenting begin!

UIC Digital Signage

These were created to advertise for the business resume review and career fair in the next few weeks. I have never created a digital signage so hopefully there won’t be any revision once I deliver these. They took me longer than expected. Unfortunately, there are not shortcuts in the creative process. I took a more typography route, but felt limited since it had to be legible at a distance. Now off to complete an assignment that is due tomorrow and my project research. I am getting nowhere on that thing.
