Something in their Throat
Commentary by AngeloCreates
“Something in their Throat” was created in November of 2021.
I was freely dancing in VR and decided to create an alien invasion. While creating this animation I wasn't thinking of a main message other than prepare for the future filled with alien creatures looking to eat you.
This one brings me joy of a future place where this glistening alien can thrive on the inhabitants of this distant planet. I included my favorite color palette of purple and glowing blues, I just love adding bloom to every single piece.
I was inspired by a potential portal to land far away, the portal can only be entered by being eaten by this alien. I started by sculpting a cube and carving out some space for water.
I created the mesh for the puddle, alien arms and huge alien head, after about 30 mins of quick sculpting I brought the entire scene into a blender. From there I needed to merge vertices, edit textures and displace some of the pieces to help create movement.
It took me about 3 hours total form sculpting, remeshing, texturing, animating and rendering. SculptrVR makes it so easy to sculpt on the go using the Quest 2.
I was thinking very hard about which pieces I needed to add movement to and which pieces I wanted stationary. I also needed to do a bit of remeshing to get my geometry all nice and squared up. I ended up only animating the water and pupil, you can see a simple displacement and keyframed movement. I used a few tools to create it all: Oculus Quest 2, SculptrVR, and Blender.
While making “Something in their Throat” I learned how quickly I could realize an entire scene and video within a night. By using SculptrVR I also learned which type of tool I needed to use (Spheres, built in primitives, etc) and which quality to export at (highest of course).
I made this while staying comfy next to my fireplace during a winter night. Created while sitting on my couch with my laptop hanging out after my normal job, and this scene just came to life!
I brought the piece into Augmented Reality using Adobe Aero-check it out on Tik Tok!
