CGI Food: Photo-realistic Salmon Caviar “Ikura-Don”

This is my first project to make a photorealistic object.

The object is Ikura-don, which is a rice bawl food with salmon caviar. It tastes like sushi of salmon caviar, but is more rich and gorgeous because you can devour huge amount of them.

It contains salmon caviar, rice, disposable chopsticks, and bawl.
The other reason I chose Ikura-don is versatility of them. Salmon caviar can be used as monster’s egg or eyeball or 3D bubble of bubble chart. Rice particles can be used as microscopic images of living body.

I have a plan to distribute the .blend file for free on BlendSwap. But in this post, I just show you the result and behind the scene of it.

I hope the CGI ikura-don makes you hungry.
