Editorial Journal Cover
Cinema 4D, Adobe Photoshop CS6
Prof. N. Woolridge
This purpose of this piece was to develop skills in 3D modelling, rendering, texturing, lighting, and setting up a virtual camera. The cover is editorial, and employs the use of visual metaphors to convey the concept of rabies virus and bioterrorism. Credit goes to Nature for the layout and design of the text on the cover.
After I finished modelling, I found texturing, cameras, and lighting to be another challenge. It was difficult to make the glass and the texture of the gas mask realistic. I rendered the glass, the exploding viruses, and the mask with depth of field separately and combined them together in Adobe Photoshop to achieve the final piece.
