Say hi on my IG:

Kudos to my wife for helping me brainstorm the ideas and metaphors for this project.

What was also pivotal for me, especially during the camera animation stage, is being able to leverage the flexibility that Eevee has to offer.

Recently, I've also realized the value of creating CG art with the perspective of photography/cinematography as opposed to a drawing/manufacturing mindset.
