Shoe (ON running)
ON Running was a Swiss startup company at the time. The innovative shoes were manufactured in Asia but soon gained a huge success and popularity with many sponsors and athletes.
Honestly, this project deserves a special status in my mind as it was my very first project in the CG industry. I started this project during my internship as a 3D-Artist in Switzerland. The job wasn’t very lucrative, but as a reward, every staff was given an original pair of these impressive shoes.
My main task in this project was to model the entire shoes from scratch, based on reference photos. Quite a challenge for someone who hadn’t been in the 3D business before but one of my most important experiences in my whole life. The stitches aren’t done over displacement but over real scattering with a Plug-in in Maya.
