I’m terrible at maintaining blogs, but quick update: I just recovered from the dreaded Omicron, and in the meantime blew up COVID with the help of Houdini, Redshift, EmberGen, and After Effects. The coronavirus base mesh was kindly provided by CG artist Zhenya85 via TurboSquid. Sound effects were added/edited/mixed in Premiere Pro (I’m a pleb when it comes to audio). 2021 was thankfully awesome otherwise. Enjoy, and Happy 2022!
