Submission Concept:
A cartoony colorful modular space station with an unconventional design is infiltrated by a swarm of octane proxies after the PANDA team activates the mysterious octane gateway to the Metaverse!


Getting the opportunity to work in digital rendering was a tremendous challenge for me.
Besides the lack of direction and infrastructure, there is a traditional outlook towards it in my home country that is not favorable and I wish to change that for future generations.
My submission thus reflects my battle (and that of countless other CG artsts) against the circumstances and challenges we face in order to get the opportunity to use technology to bring our visions to reality.

It is a lighthearted submission since I have always used humor to brave the tide ,as I sail through countless storms in the real and CG world.
Feedback is appreciated.


Modeling Workspace
Small 7/11 foot dorm room cell with 1 computer running GTX 560 with AMD x6 CPU.
Cooling system CPU//GPU- Internal fans
Myself: Pedestal fan and table fan :/

-Incredible summer heat.
-Compact living conditions.

Technical Achievements
- Got particle effect to work with Octane showcasing full textures and motionblur. I didn't this this was possible, but thought of a work around.
-This is a large scene with a lot of content, and good optimization and clean modeling meant that the scene did not crash 3ds max and set cards/room on fire.
- Came up with some interesting modeling and texturing techniques for the buildings, vehicles and special effects.
