Finally done. I’ve been working on this project for 3-4 weeks, but I think it worth the invested time. It is an old soviet camera called Quarz-2M. It has been lying around at home and I thought, it would be a great idead if I recreated it in blender. I modelled, rigged and animated it in blender. Texturing happened in Substance Painter as usual. The animation was rendered with EEVEE. Still images with Cycles.
(PS.: I am avaliable for freelance work, if anyone interested. Take the above video as a demo reel.)
