"Volo Urbano" by Tullio Crali in Animated 3D

This was a personal project that I had wanted to do for a while due to the similarity of the original painting to a lowpoly 3d rendering. I modeled out the scene in Blender and animated it using both keyframe and path-follow animation techniques to create a seamless 100 frame loop of the planes flying through the city (with motion illusion). I included annotations with some details about the Futurist movement, which is the origin of the painting. Textures were done in substance painter and post-processing within the Sketchfab viewer itself was utilized to create the final look!

This project received a staff pick on Sketchfab and won the May 2017 monthly lowpoly challenge "UtopiaLPChallenge"! The original painting the piece was based on can be seen in the description on Sketchfab.
