The Mind Blowing Oculus Medium Art of Goro Fujita
This artist is showing us the future of creativity with virtual sculpting.When we first tried Oculus’ new tool Medium at Connect last Fall, we were blown away by how intuitive and natural sculpting in VR could be. The sculpting system uses the company’s Touch hand controllers, giving you full control to create whatever you can dream up of. And its amazing.Much like Tilt Brush on the HTC Vive, Medium gives you a virtual palette and tool to create in a 3D space. But instead of painting with a brush like Tilt Brush, Medium lets you create, sculpt and build with a material that acts and looks like clay.For the most part, everyone demoing Medium would sculpt a 3D face or maybe a potted plant. They weren’t that great, but clearly the tool could be used for much more elaborate work.So what happens when you let an Art Director at Oculus Story Studio who also happens to be a children’s book illustrator go nuts in Medium?Goro Fujita happens.Having worked over a decade professionally creating animated movies, commercials, children’s books and mobile games, Fujita has found a new medium and is giving us a taste of what Medium art can look like if used as a professional VR creation tool.Here are samples Fujita has been regularly sharing on Instagram and Twitter. Make sure you give him some love!
