MOCK JOURNAL COVER: NIPAH VIRUS

The Process | From the initial concept sketch, to the extraction of scientifically correct molecular models, to the modeling itself.

Format | Print - journal

Media | Maxon Cinema 4D, ePMV, Adobe Photoshop CS5 for the background, and Adobe Illustrator CS5 for the layout

Audience | General public

Purpose | This mock Scientific American journal cover was created as part of a course assignment, during which we learned the process of 3D modeling, texturing, and lighting using Maxon Cinema 4D.


This was also an exercise in incorporating molecular data from the Protein Data Bank using the open-source plug-in, embedded Python Molecular Viewer (ePMV) in order to create an accurate molecular model.
