My first big project was using Cinema 4D. It became a personal challenge to see how much I could accomplish with the little experience I had at the time using C4D. I learned new things while working on it, like using Octane, lighting, texturing, and more. I completed the project with 908 hours of work and rendering time.
Mirage consists of a desolated yet beautiful environment somewhere in the Universe. The project was inspired by "Wall-e" but without the post-apocalyptic look. Our character "XM-24" is losing hope by trying to find his purpose of being alive in a world without the existence of any other intelligent life form.
It was a fun experience as I learned to create and render things faster after doing this.
