Top 8 VR Animations and Comic Con Cosplays
Virtual reality has been making waves in the animation and comic realms.
For animators, traditional 2D visual media tend to appear linear and involve locked off shots or camera angles, VR experiences feature multiple vantage points are similar to real-world experiences. This requires animators to think of VR animation from new perspectives, especially when they’re creating large-scale VR experiences.
For comic con organizers, VR offers more possibilities to engage their supporters and communities. Those unable to attend get a chance to take a sneak peak at the event, and those attending can also enjoy a virtual tour to recap their visit to not miss a thing.

Nishiwaki Ayano was also one of the first 3D artists to have published their work on VeeR.
