Curiosity Mars Rover
I did this one last year and thought that today, the day that Curiosity finally landed safely in the surface of Mars, is a perfect time for a refresher. This piece was a pet project of mine for a long time and was lucky enough to have literally months develop it. The model of the rover, is one of the most complex I've ever created, hugely benefited from the collaboration of JPL that provided me with all kinds of reference.
The motion graphic was created simultaneously with the talented Emmy winner Sohail Al Jamea, a work of art that we tweaked for weeks until we were almost happy with it.
