my entry in greyscale gorillas's latest "5 second project" movember related contest titled "HUGE mustache" where you're given a theme\title and have to create 5 seconds of animation to go with it.
created in lightwave and after effects, the character is my low poly interpretation of a very old lightwave tutorial, modeled and rigged in a day (rigging courtesy of my auto rigging script). render passes,post and audio edit in another half day.
rendered out rawrgb, occlusion, cel edges and a painted/occluded muscle map, comped together using various blend modes. flicker and vignette from some old super8 footage i'd filmed years ago, grading and colour treatment via curves with a touch of magic bullet in after effects.
kinda happy with the concept more than the final project, could have done with a few more seconds :)
as usual feel free to ask if you've any questions
i got referred to greyscalegorilla, its amazing.. will follow this site from now :)
Drat! Somewhere between desktop and Vimeo my video became 6 seconds long. Crud. See here if you have an extra second to spare: vimeo.com/54122671
Otherwise, nice work everyone. Cool stuff!
