Christmas Card 2019

This thread is for my animated Christmas card project. The goal is a short film not a CG object representing a paper Christmas card. Some parts of the videos will be customized for each recipient.

Awesome Mikom! And super speed modeling. You made this in microseconds!

Draise? Punk, he can do nothing, no knowledge, no talent. Mice are better cg artists! He certainly can't run a business. You call those renders? ( :worship: )

Re: Monthly Modeling Challenge Idea Pool

If We Built It Now. What if we built ancient buildings or things now? A modern Parthenon, pyramids, viking ship, great wall of China, chariot, stone hinge ... what would a modern version of ancient things be like?
