3D Polycystic Kidney: model and animation

Description and process

The aim of this project was to create a 3D model and short animation of a polycystic kidney. It was part of MSc Medical Art. First information was gathered on late stage polycystic kidneys, which was used as a reference during the sculpting process. The kidney was modelled from scratch in ZBrush and coloured using polypaint. Information found during research was used to make two additional models, one healthy and one simple cystic kidney. An animation was then created using Keyshot, after which postprocessing took place in Adobe AfterEffects.  


Software and skills used

Pixologic ZBrush, Keyshot, Adobe AfterEffects, 3D modelling and animation, video editing.
