This month, Magic Room Studios shared some of their latest portfolio work called ‘The Spirit of the Forest’. The goal for this project was to create a short film that captures a magical world and forest that exists right next to ours but hidden, that is enriched with enchanting creatures and beings. By taking photogrammetry and photoscans of the forest at the base of the mountain, Magic Room’s artists were able to use the images as a base for textures in creating the 3D character model. Check out their case study to see how they brought the majestic creatures to life.
