Let’s face it, February is a rough month as far as the weather is concerned. The snow, clouds and rain are still sticking around even though there are no more holidays for them to brighten with their presence.
A nice flurry of snow is romantic and magical on December 24, but on December 26 you find yourself muttering angrily as you scrape that magic off of your car at 6am. It’s almost impossible to enjoy anything cold in February, but that didn’t stop one VR artist from trying to put a bit of beauty back in this frigid season.
Mickael Krebbs is the artist behind the above work simply titled, Snow. Go ahead, you can scroll it, shrink it drag it, drop it or zoom it to your heart’s content. Snow was created using the three dimensional VR art program known as Quill. Created by Oculus Story Studio, Quill lets users inside of the Rift VR headset to sketch amazing works like Snow using their own two hands. Unlike Oculus’ other art program, Medium, Quill creations are made up of thousands of individual brushstrokes rather than clumps of digital clay.
This means that every scarf stitch, snowflake and strand of hair you see in Snow had to be completed individually by Krebbs using one of several in-game brushes or pencils. The closer you zoom in, the more of these details you’ll be able to see.
In addition to Snow, there were three other pieces of incredible VR artistry we thought you should see this week. Take a look:
Monty – Quill
Chameleon VR – Oculus Medium
Home Tilt Home – Tilt Brush
Check back with us next week for more amazing creations from increasingly talented VR artists around the world.
