This is my entry for week 65 of the Rookies Weekly Drills about “Bubble Gum”, the “Shock Gum” or “Trick Gum”
I started to look for sources of inspiration or reference, something about bubble gum that would call my attention and I stumbled upon the trick gum rabbit hole. This made me remember when I was a kid and would try to trick my friends into getting shocked. I just knew I had to have a go at it.
It was all modeled in Maya and Zbrush and later textured in substance. At the end it was all rendered in Arnold. The concept is very basic, I just copied the green version of the “electric” bubble gum pack. Once I was finished I thought it was too basic and decided to have a go at replicating the inside electronics that give it its shocking fun. To finalize it I decided to do a studio style render like the ones they do for product marketing and I was done!
