Now Playing Tracks

Here’s my first project for my 3D Design class. I hollowed out a copy of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban and inserted my layered paper illustration.

I was playing around with the idea of using only white paper, but still getting a full range of values. I achieved that by installing a small light in the back of the book. The scene where Harry’s bright stag Patronus protects him from the Dementors seemed like it perfectly encapsulated my goal. 

I really enjoyed working on this piece. There were a few engineering challenges, and I had to do a lot of problem-solving. (Of course, I’m now thinking of doing the whole series, but we’ll see how ambitious I really am.)
