“Sharky”, the digital goldfish and mascot at ars navigandi GmbH, is presenting the new showreel. “Sharky” is showing himself at LEARNTEC in a bitmap-graphic outfit. As a link to the founding of ars navigandi, 16 years ago, the design hints to the era where graphics created through the use of raster graphics software and images where edited on the pixel level. In order to learn “Sharky” how to swim it is animated frame-by-frame.
The video is edited in Blender, a professional free and open-source 3D computer graphics software product used for creating animated films, visual effects, art, 3D printed models, interactive 3D applications and video games.
