Worlds in Worlds is a beautiful proof of concept by Goro Fujita, who wanted to test just how deep the VR illustration tool Quill by Story Studio could go into an animation. Marvel at how well it works as advertised.
Quill allows users to paint in virtual reality on an infinitely scalable canvas - with rich color tools and different brushes. Quill is designed to be expressive, precise and to let the artist's "hand" come through clearly - whether that's a watercolor style, pencil style, oil painting style or other. Quill is made to be intuitive so creators without technical training can easily start making beautiful work in VR and be comfortable over a long period of time while using the Oculus Touch controllers. Non-creators can download Quill to experience amazing Quill illustrations ('Quillustrations') in our preloaded showcase - and have an experience completely unlike viewing a painting on a wall in a traditional gallery. Now, art lovers can enter and be present inside a virtual reality painting.

While it’s definitely a great tool for any non-coders who want to get a small website up and running quickly, managing content with a primarily visual interface can become a pain once you have more than […]
When you can’t wait for the world’s longest meeting to end, the mindless leg bouncing makes your boredom obvious and just annoys everybody else. Everyone knows the TPS reports need the damn cover sheet, but some sadistic colleague keeps forgetting, probably on purpose just to eat into your lunch hour. Enough is enough!While serving a […]
