The Project

Heart of Melrose is a 3D modeled image rendering of the vibrant Melrose Center logo. Each shard and color is represented in full detail through a juxtaposition of light, shadow and glass. The project was made on the 3D modeling program Autodesk Maya, utilizing Photoshop for texturing. The Melrose Center logo represents the heart of the center and this piece is reflection of that in a 3D modeled crystal form.
