It would be entirely irresponsible to build Bowling Pins and a Bowling Ball and then just let them sit there idle. So, being the upstanding member of the 3d modeling community that I am, I assembled the above action shot to breath some life into those dusty assets. A single still frame of a likely strike, which almost assuridly will result in one spinning & wobbly, yet ultimately sturdy and stubborn, asshole pin. You can almost fell the shattered hopes.

I enjoyed playing around with the reflective properties of the floor material, and I feel like a small, faint understanding of how to interlay diffuse and specular color properties might be starting to take root.

Total Time: 1 hour
