An exceptionally Interesting project and getting to model of the clockwork was brilliant. I think to date this might be the most entertainment I’ve gotten out of a modeling experience. The composition was something I ended up having to go back and forth on, but I eventually found this nice balance of color and camera effects. I will be uploading the model as well, once it is packaged correctly.
