EXPLORE VR

Exploring the world of 3d and virtual reality

[Part of Isolation Art Project 2020]

VIRTUAL REALITY TOOLS

Hands on, fast and efficient. A little bit of playing around with these tools and the possibilities are endless.
On a practical level VR is incredibly fast and has effective results with limitless potential.  Youtube made film makers, Instagram made photographers. VR will change the game for illustrator’s, storyteller’s, designer’s, animator’s, architects, landscaper’s, interior designer’s, set designer’s…..the list goes on.
For my project I am working in VR and making 2d content for today. With Google Tilt Brush I’m exploring concept design, painting, sculpting, dynamic story boarding, animation and film making.

 

VR ENVIRONMENTS

This scene was a bit of and experiment and trying to figure out  distance, shapes and lights in the space your working in.
The room or space can be as big as you want it to be so it can be difficult to be aware of how big or small to work to. Also, a plan helps. For this test I started at the edges and worked my way in to the center.  You can explore the vr file on mobile, tablet, laptop and desktop.   Please see the controls  to navigate on screen or with a mouse.
