JCB Advert

3D Environment & Product

Project description

We were given the JCB digger model by JCB themselves to texture it and animate it. This project was my first project learning and using UV maps.

NOTE: this wasn't made in one UV map but individually for each part at the time as it was easier to learn and use.

The JCB project was a task we were given by JCB. They provided the tractor and we had to create a scene for it. I chose to create a scientific lab to depict a masculine scene, as the tractor has to be seen as a strong and masculine object. The scene was rendered with a few area lights, luxigons (from the ceiling lights) and dome lights that cover the whole scene on 5% intensity. The smoke was created using HyperVoxels and animated from the glass particle boxes. The animation was fairly easy to create but the lighting was a challenge for me since there are a lot of lights and the scene is set indoors. I had to find a way to give the lights a luminous effect without overdoing it.
