3D Environment Design

After sketching and visualizing a generic scene and backdrop for the environment for each garment, I will sketch in 3D with Tilt Brush, Gravity Sketch and 3D model in Blender. This will be to create assets that enhance the visual and emotional experience of the environment. In this, I will be animation, texturing and rendering hyperrealistic images and 3D objects to import into a virtual reality scene.

Most native New Yorkers know to avoid Times Square. Overcrowding, Spiderman berating you for photos, and overrun with tourists.

At the beginning of the coronavirus breakout on March 20th, I had taken a walk to escape my apartment. For the first time in my life, and hopefully the last, I got to see New York City completely empty.

 

This was a breathtaking, once in a lifetime experience for photography. Billboards that were typically lit up with brands and advertisements were decorated with words of encouragement and love for New York City and its essential workers.

I took photographs and documented the experience and feeling in Tilt Brush and Google's Oculus Quest.
