Week 8 is a recap and polishing of previous work. We retouch and organize the best pieces from previous weeks and present them all with a consistent layout.
My final design project for the class is the completed “Atlantean Hovercraft”.
In week 8, we study Parallel Light (Sun Light) and we present our final 3-point scene.
