A project I did in my spare time at home after work and during the weekends. I was responsible for everything, from the actual concept and modeling and rigging to the final rendering and compositing, as well as the music and sound design.
Took me 3 to 4 months start to finish, the final rendering using arnold took around 12 days 24/7.
