The project was made by Maximilien Vert.
Maximilien Vert, a Senior Technical Artist at Adobe Substance 3D and a renowned expert on all things digital leaves, continues the series of unbeleafable 3D animations with a new outstanding project that will leaf you in awe.
Similar to the author's previous artwork, the new timelapse animation meticulously portrays the gradual decay of a maple leaf after it falls from a tree.
