Adobe Animate CC - Before you upgrade

In the past whenever a new version of an Adobe program came along, I'd keep the old one still installed as a backup.. 

With Adobe CC I was a bit nervous..
Turns out you can still do the whole "keep the previous version" thing. 

If your curious about the changes in Adobe Animate CC, here's a detailed video by Jazza

Earth Day - Quick Blender Model

On my morning check in, facebook told me that it was Earth Day.. A few minutes later I had the idea for a quick model.. based on an old earth day 2d artwork I'd seen before on this page (the gorgeous one called "2015! | Divine Organic").

I omitted the flowers and intentional symmetry of the original 2d artwork .. and went a little more organic with my composition.

Decided to combine the simplicity of png images on multiple 3d panes.. and then 's easy to use lighting and post processing effects. Technically the globe and the text are the only 3d models in this file. Anyway I had a pretty busy day at work, and could only spare a few minutes for this quick side project.
