First, a trailer ...
This little clip was primarily created just for the fun of it. I wanted to see how well a fierce stormy sea could be created in Cinema 4D, without the use of any plugins. After that, rain and mist was composited in After Effects. The 3D bottle was a freebie I found here. The sound elements were sourced from Adobe's Audition sample library.
Let's draw an octopus!
I have found that it's far too easy to forget the joy of drawing something simply because I find it interesting. In the midst of meeting client demands, and accomplishing projects that in no way stimulate me creatively, it's satisfying to go back back to pencil and paper.
Mock it up to make it complete.
The bottle that the label is mocked up on can be found here.
