If you've been in any math class, I'm sure you'd remember the grid were you plot points, X coordinates go left and right, Y, goes up and down. Then, there's the Z, which goes toward and away from you. So the challenge of this project was to create the feeling of depth in an environment. As if you were traveling into it, I of course, opted to paint all of the visuals myself in photoshop for necessary practice, because I could have used images from the internet instead. I wanted to give the feeling of going into another world, from a room with a broken wall, into a lush forest which leads to temple deep within. I really like how this turned out, and I'd definitely use something like this in any animated series that I'd do, because it truly creates the feeling of depth in the environment.
To push it even further, I could have animated elements layered and really broaden the horizons.
