Anticipation and Joy

Still Life Emotion



Still life could be the simplest artifact for artists to study on, and this project is about giving still life emotions——anticipation and Joy. I simply made the still life in the center of camera frame but let lights and shadows contribute to the atmosphere in the render. By building environment meshes but not actually putting them inside the frame, I can emphasize the power of light and shadow which can create the mood. I was responsible for everything includes modeling, texturing, shading, lighting and rendering. This project is made in Autodesk Maya with RenderMan.
