Brain


Visual effects for a documentary on the science of creativity.

This gallery shows the stages the brain went through start to finish, it went from a pretty rough place asI grappled with Mental Ray's not very intuitive displacement set up, and then through several stages of texturing as I tried to find one that worked.

Theres some really amazing reference images online and these are the ones I picked to work loosely towards.
