Final render for the SCAD elective course I was enrolled in.

Wireframe showcase. I only have some of the rocks smoothed so it wouldn't become too small for the final render when I smoothed everything else.

Sacred Bonsai Diorama

A project I worked on for a SCAD course that involved us making an environment. I got inspired by monk graves and bonsai trees, and wanted to harmonize the two for my diorama. The project introduced us to making our own Maya materials, lighting setups, and learning how to render. The biggest challenge was adding that small amount of fog I wanted for the scene.
