a Challenge was Born.
a Challenge was Accepted.
to Create a 3d animated Marble Run.

NOTE: The opening lines is a inside joke referencing me not sharing any 3d work I have created in the pass ten years 🙂

Thank you so much for viewing and I hope you enjoyed!
The main goal of this project was to complete a fully 3d animated marble run and learn as much wealth I could creating with Blender.Animation
Rigid Body Simulations
Smoke Simulations
High Poly to Low Poly Baking
Lighting and Rendering
Stylized Texturing

I created everything by myself, including music and the graphics. I used Blender for all of my3D modeling needs as well as some Photoshop work with 3ds Max Second Life’s default program Tinkercad. All animations were rendered in EEVEE software before they made it onto Youtube which was later edited using After Effects CS5+ Premiere Pro CC 2014
