What I learned

 

It was one of my first long projects. I learned about design principles, research, documentation and thoughtout workflows. I think the most important thing that I learned however, was that more work doesn’t equal better results. Quite the contrary hard work in a project can lead to a disaster if the balance isn’t being kept.

 

Making of

Working with my hands taught me alot about 3D.

It took a while to figuer out the character of Samuel.

I always tried different things and asked for feedbacks.
