Cubic Tragedy

Cubic Tragedy 

Apparently caricature work so well because it is close to the way our brains handle faces.

This is a charming and funny little 3D animation that’s guaranteed to raise a smile.

It’s won a few awards. It’s striking how engaging a face made of such simple elements can be.

I tried to find some appropriate info to go with this animation, on how the brain uses caricature. There’s tons of it. It’s pretty heavy duty. I stumbled over a yet more interesting angle that includes the caricature effect.
