Ok, back to the grapes. This was a very intricate process to get the grapes to do what you are looking at. This took a lot of time and resources. You may be asking yourself, “How did they get the grapes to stand up like that?” There is a very simple answer. They aren’t grapes at all. They are 3D. No photography was utilized in the making of these grapes. Our very own Tom Hofmeister modeled, textured, and lit these in Cinema 4D. Tom saw a render challenge by greyscalegorilla.com that had been recently been judged and thought he might try his hand at the grapes. Not bad, right? The answer is, “I wholeheartedly agree,” for those of you who might be confused.
Our editors are all the time messing around and trying new things, watching tutorials, and continually learning to make themselves better. Keep an eye out for more experiments by our editors.
