Always wanting to improve our skill set, Kris Theorin our resident Animator, is teaching himself how to do 3D animation! His first completed project creates a whimsical and somehow darkly beautiful ice cream kingdom which features workers toiling away while they build an amazing ice cream sundae complete with nuts, sprinkles, whipped cream and a cherry! Animated using Maya and Arnold renderer, the ice cream was hand modeled to look like it was naturally drooping over each other and then textured specifically to give it a stylistically cartoonish feel. The slightly ominous sound design is a nice juxtaposition to the more light hearted subject matter. Now we just need a commercial project to sink our teeth – or better yet a spoon- into!
