Meta Quest (2): Beautiful quillustrations and how to see them
Quillustrations are a fascinating young VR art form. I'll show you how to experience some of the most beautiful 3D 360 scenes.
Quillustrations are 3D illustrations created with the VR app Quill. With this, artists can draw and animate objects and entire scenes by hand in virtual reality. Since 2016, this has developed into an art form.
In Oculus TV, you can search specifically for Quillustrations by activating the "VR Animation" filter. What follows is a subjective and by no means exhaustive list of the most impressive Quill artworks, as well as instructions on how to view them with Meta Quest (2). Don't worry, it's easy!
List of the beautiful Quillustrations
An Afternoon in Tokyo
A young man and a young woman meet on a staircase. In anime style. An amazingly lifelike and atmospheric scene.
Anim Brush Portrait
Stylized portrait of a man. What you can't see in the picture: The colors and shapes flow and give the portrait liveliness.
A dystopian megacity in dioramic miniature format. Incredibly detailed. Especially cool: The other views teleport you to different corners of the city.
Bio Excavation Facility
A cylindrical sci-fi facility with hovering robots. The artist recommends viewing it while standing.
It's Valentine's Day. A couple sits on the couch munching popcorn by the light of the TV.

Lifetime Achievement is more than a quillustration. It is a touching animated film about what matters in life.
This quillustration is inspired by the famous black and white photograph by Charles C. Ebbets. Not for people with a fear of heights.
A Quill adaptation of the comic book of the same name. You'll find yourself in Cheri's Diner, an in-between world where the deceased arrive after their death.
Namoo is a full-fledged VR film. It tells the moving story of an artist who strays from his path.
Anyone who has seen Terminator 2 should know this scene. According to Matt Schaefer, he still can't get it out of his mind.
The Cupola is the observation tower of the ISS. The quillustration is inspired by a true incident.
The Remedy is a VR film and one of the most impressive examples of what is possible with Quill. It's about a young woman who embarks on a dangerous journey to find a cure for her sick son.
Vampire in the Sun
A young woman with a parasol sits in a tranquil patch of woods. An idyll. Or is it?
