A second experiment to bring real elements into a digital creation. For a group project in virtual reality we decided to use the game engine Unity and the Oculus rift display. For my part I wanted to recreate the environment under the ice of Europa, one of Jupiters’ moon. Instead of going fully digital which was expected I deciced on sculpting a block of ice to create a natural look. The 3D Capture of a transparent and translucent material is a challenge in itself. Some of the main shapes were not converted and most of the details were lost during initial tests.
I decided on covering the whole thing
with food coloring to bring out the
details and allow a better 3D capture.
