Lighting, Texture and Layout: Study Scene
A progression through my work on a Study Scene. This work was done primarily in Autodesk Maya utilizing Mental Ray.
Selected and screened at The Roseville Animation Festival (2012) and the Los Angeles International Underground Film Festival (2012)! This is a short animation made by myself and two other students at DePaul University. We were going for a "paper cutout" look for the style, but it was actually made in Photoshop, Illustrator and After Effects and edited in Premiere. Our team was so small, we all had a hand in pretty much everything at one point or another, but we gave ourselves a little credit for the main tasks. Hope you enjoy it!
