Marine Life and Death
This entry shows two university projects. The first involved creating images that represented mortality and exhibits the stages of whale fall. The latter is a 3D turntable of a long-extinct marine reptile, Henodus, of which there is limited information available and therefore involved extensive research.
The death of a being as intelligent as a whale is tragic, but the benefits it provides to the ecosystems of the deep is something that marine biologists marvel at on the rare occasions whale fall is discovered. The brief of this project was to create four images that represent mortality. The compositions were to contain no manmade objects and therefore the lighting within this scene needed to represent the light absorption of water.
I was tasked with researching and creating a 3D model of the prehistoric marine creature, Henodus. The model was sculpted in zbrush.
