This was a Project for Nike Basketball called, "Lebron 11 Forging Iron: Heat Tested". Ryan Unruh shot the shoe and we went back and forth on a few ideas and this is where it ended up. Glowing floor was a bleary eyed late night idea that brought a great vibe. Super fun project and really happy with the end result. Used Modo, Blender and Photoshop for the post work.
