Illustrations I made for BBDO as a freelance animator and designer for Exxon Mobil. Check out the final image on Exxon's website here.
The goal was to visualize key moments in the creation of various fuel types when the raw petroleum interacts with synthetic zeolite which is the model seen here.
Since the process occurs on a microscopic level I felt it led to a good opportunity to be able to really play with a number of different materials and looks.
Once I found a suitable model online, I utilized Cinema 4d, Octane, and Photoshop to bring it all together.
