    In the production, we were exploring various kinds of technique to build the mountains and grass in the back. Here are some fun works from the process. 

    Luckily, I also got some opportunities to work on the low-resolution model of the safari animals.

    For the elephant, our 3D artist Elijah Akouri design the structure first, then I finalized the model.

    Below are two concept art exercises I did base on Arvid Volz's sophisticated model.
