- This is an uncommercial project that I collaborated on with my friends. I have a chance to get out of my safe zone. I got an opportunity to do all parts of CGI the concept for the final animation video. It helped me to understand more about the next step of the process. Not only concept Art. I have a hip of fun to do and learning it
