Merry Christmas and a happy New Year from SANTA CORP.
The Holiday season of 2019 has come to an end, and it has been another great year for SANTA CORP, the world leader in seasonal toy production and distribution.
Our goals to further optimize and robotize production has been met, and although that has meant laying off most Elfs, we truly believe this will benefit growth and revenue!
We have also made great strides to lower material costs, by introducing new exciting chemicals and plastics. Most of them are not even that toxic! True, a couple of reindeers might have had allergic, fatal reactions, but we are (almost) sure that children will be fine.
The ongoing expansion of the toy factory has also been going as planned, with the new chemical waste system finally in operation. This new, state of the art system, safely transfers toxic waste away from the factory, and out into the empty north pole ice, where no one (except reindeers and polar bears) is harmed.
The new, drone-based gift distribution system has taken over from the old fashioned “Reindeer- sleigh” -System this year. Our new drone, “SLEIGH-BOT 5000”, is more energy efficient, faster and more reliable than Reindeer… and it even looks cool!
All in all, it has been a great year, and we are sure that investors and costumers alike will be thrilled to know that SANTA CORP. remains the number one Toy factory in the world!
This is my entry for the #EnscapeUnwrapped competition. i've taken a quite different approach, and have told the story of a modern, corporate Santa's toy factory... Gone are the cute elfs and reindeer, and in comes hardcore industry, producing toys for the 2 billion children of the world it is a humorous comment on the excessive consumption and spending of the season
A LOT of work has gone into the modelling and planing of the scene. many ideas have been tried, and many sketches of layouts and designs have been produced. Some models are found online, but they are all heavily modified to fit with the overall scheme. i've used several new (for me) techniques, including custom quixel mixer materials, clothworks simulations and displacement modelling.
I might share some images from the process further down in the thread
I hope You all had a fantastic Christmas and a great new year, and i'm looking forward to a new year with lots of Enscaping and inspiration from You all
