Inspiration

I am in process of Udacity's VR certificate, and learning C# along the VR path. Here is the video demo of the game Cosmo Barrel I am building alone: https://youtu.be/riJQEvgSa_U Inspired by the pixel fish Aquarium from Brew install asciiquarium in terminal. So much fun to translate the 2D pixel fish into 3D form using illustrator and tinkercad. ...

I am continuing to research the perfect solution to build assets for my VR candy world. From the previous post, I brought a scanner through Structure.io, but it did not work out because candies are too small to have good quality scans. I returned the 3D scanner right away and kept trying to find the solution I need. I even attempted to learn Blender within a week, but it was too much to learn. One night in the...

I was dreaming of walking on an island that builds on candies last night. The dream becomes my inspiration for my VR project. My design process starts with creating a mood board on Pinterest. First, I thought I would buy all the ready-made 3D models online or gather a budget to hire a 3d artist to build them for me. Then, I found an awesome pack in the Unity 3D asset store called Candy Heaven Pack. I...

Update: It is been a while I updated my process, I continue learning C# and Unity3d in Udacity nano degree course for Virtual Reality, and hopefully get the certificate by the end of March. Meanwhile, I decided my deadline will be showing my design around in VRLA, and the game I am building is not even close to finished. I decided to push my animation skills in VR instead for VRLA. First I saw an article on bored panda...

Thank you to Debbie Millman for hosting the connection with National Novel Writing Month. I had great fun designing a cover and supporting the cause for Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month). Here is my cover: This book cover's design idea represents the idea of the main character (great-grandmother in her 90s) rocking in her rocking chair telling her life story in post-war Paris era. The Eiffel Tower has lights that are offset because her 90-year-old eyesight is failing. I chose...

  [embed]http://youtu.be/kk9mx8_l4KU[/embed] Come check out our Virtual Reality trip in Seoul. First try using my Gear 360 camera.  As a beginner, I think Gear 360 is super easy to use, also the firmware just updated when we are in Seoul, and the feature of record button on the lock screen is super handy. I will keep shooting more video and please come check back on my youtube channel or Facebook page to get more updates! Seoul, Korea is such a wonderful...

There are lots of meetups about VR AR in SF or LA in California, but I am living in Greenville, South Carolina. I feel so lucky that there is a Virtual Reality meet up an hour away from where I live in Asheville, NC. Tonight I will be going to try out the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift for the first time in my life. I heard about the painting program Google made called ’Tilt’ for...

Welcome to my first Developer post on the development of making my own game for Virtual Reality. I decided to post here rather than randomly on social media here and there, so, you can follow me on how one turns from a graphic designer/creative director into a game developer. A little Background I always love new technology, I think we are living in a very exciting era. After I landed myself a job in Apple as a...
