During my studies, I had the opportunity to join the Samsonite school design team during one week and my goal was to help them using my digital design skills such as modeling and rendering. It was short, but really interesting because they let me be a part of the project sharing my ideas not only as a modeler or a CG artist, but also as a real Digital Designer.
Digital design : Jean-François Bozec
Product design : Constance Texier - Antoine Giard
The design team gave me quick sketches with measurements before I start the 3D modeling. I worked with them during 5 days modeling their final concept and helping them about some details before the presentation to Samsonite.
I used my smartphone to take some pictures of real Samsonite luggages materials in order to make my own textures. Then I used 3DSMax to light and texture the scene, and Vray to render it. The rendering step took me around 2 days.
