A hairy experience.

Testing out fast skin shader in mental ray.

Mental Ray Maya hair render. Skin has sub surface scattering material.

Maya hair version 2

...and how the hair looks when rendered in Maya software and composited in After Effects.

The cloudy background is just a tad overused by now, Will try to search for some alternative way of incorporating background into the images.

A bit of painting

Been a loooong while since the last digital painting. Trying to get a feel of 2D again. Digital painting is fun :)

Compositing a shot for newbies.

Not much of compositing other than tweaking the colors in this.

This sh*t is rigged!

Far from an awesome rigging reel, but still proud of it being one of my firsts.
Not full rigs as there's a time constraint for the project, therefore only gave the bones what they needed for the animation as per required by storyboard.

Samurai Jet rig is up for download for free at Creative Crash

Still issues needing to be fixed though, as soon as I am able to squeeze in some time lol.

This is where it all begins...

Thus, the long, arduous journey into the land of CG begins. Will our hero triumph? Will he fall into the depths of the Valley Uncanny? Stay tooned.

Ready set go!

Messing around with material animation.
