For my final project, I created an animated scenery. Potentially there would have been some interactions added via the hierarchically modeled dog (which in my opinion looks like a golden pig right now). The main focus was to make a "nice-looking" scenery to simply look at. Adding a one-way street with adorable chebs dancing together underneath sounds nice, doesn't it?
All resources were found free from two main sites: turbosquid and tf3dm. For future students, I recommend just signing up for free on turbosquid (but you should do searches on their site beforehand to see if they have what you need).
