Oh no... I've been here far too long.

This started out as a simple idea to illustrate how I’ve been feeling during COVID: like a fungus growing in the dark, fusing permanently with my desk. (Hadn’t left my apartment in weeks; sometimes it seems I just work nonstop. I honestly love working from home, but even I need a little air and light once in a while.)

Accidentally turned into a big project. I'd never created a full, 3D scene of this scope from scratch and working on this helped me gain familiarity with 3D modeling, sculpting, lighting, and composition.

Modeled / sculpted in Cinema 4D (hard surface, scene render) & ZBrush (organics).
