The Mill is a conceptual design project, done by Vancouver based 3D Artist Chris Kowal, to showcase MP Lighting‘s LED lights. Chris started his WIP thread about this project on the forums back in July 2011 and kept updating us about his progress. Yesterday the work was finally published in the form of an interactive website, best viewed on a tablet device and designed with the sales team of MP Lighting in mind offering them a portable tool to help their clients visualize lighting designs. All the work (design, modeling, texturing, lighting and rendering) was done by Chris except the coding of the site.
There is much more to see in The Mill Flickr set for this project and on The Mill Project dedicated Website… MP Story – Mill Project. Make sure you explore it… on an iPad or other tablet if you have it
Here is how the Map Overview section looks like…
Here are Chris’s images that he made in the Mill Project.
