Hello!

 I made a short 3d animation called <The deep ocean>. Before I produce this animation, I was so interested in deep-sea and the unknown creatures. Moreover, I've always wondered what kind of creatures live in there. This is why I decided to use the theme of the deep sea.

CONCEPT ART

Before I started modeling, I designed various concepts referring to references of underwater creatures

I wanted to express mysterious feeling by the whale creature, so I finally decided to put some tentacles on the whale to make it look like a whale wearing dress.

STORY BOARD

This is the storyboard that I planned at first. It's a bit different from the final version.

CREATURES 

1. WHALE

2. SMALL FISH

I animated the small fish using SINE to make it wriggle and MOTION PATH to make it move.

( Defrom -> Nonlinear -> Sine )


3. BABY WHALE

ENVIRONMENT

In every scene, I used VRayEnvironmentFog to make it look like the underwater.

I modeled stones of various sizes  using Zbrush and scattered them using MASH in Maya.

When it comes to the floor and stones, I textured them in Quixel Mixer which has many useful PBR textures.

In addition, I made several ocean plants and corals using Speed Tree to fill in the empty spaces.

I put marine snow to make it look more like the deep sea. I made them using two planes which combined in a cross shape, and scattered them using MASH.
