Design for Production: Workflow

I finally got around to finishing the assignment. I'm still not 100% happy with the result, but I could work on this project forever. Had a blast learning new techniques and getting better at structuring a treatment. Still a lot to learn so onto the next project!

A year and a half later, I finally finished the assignment!

I found that the sections of long repeating parallel lines on my object were looking like heatsinks, so I gave it a little story as some kind of overheating processor, opening up and venting, giving us a glimpse at its sweet hexadecimal guts in the process.

A wholistic approach to education.
