Chemistry, the Molecular Nature of Matter and Change, 7e, Chemistry art and glassware redesign project

As the lead artist for this title, I was responsible for redesigning the look of the visuals for the Chemistry, 7e textbook. Previous editions used flat vector illustrations, and in order to gain market share that may have been lost in previous editions, it was determined that the art for this particular title needed to be updated to 3D photo-realistic images.

The visuals for these static images were modeled using 3D Studio Max and rendered using Mental Ray. All models have been rigged with sliders to allow artists to easily render multiple states of a particular item to use in figures throughout the book as well as for use in animations or interactive 3D scenes for online content.
