Space Basketball

In Zhuoqun Wang's words...

"This animation is about a cyborg man playing basketball in a sci-fi surrounding. The animation mainly shows the body mechanics of the character as well as the surrounding. The character rig and the environment are done by other artists. The credits are given at the end of the video.

"I did the animation, texture, lighting, render and post production. Before starting animating the character, I shot a reference video to best match the body gesture and timing of the animation.The animation is finished with Maya and is uploaded to deadline render farm with Arnold.

"The whole animation are rendered in multiple AOV layers for me to do any necessary work in the Post. The textures are produced in Substance Painter and are exported back into Maya. Each texture has a proper material shader on top of it. The post work is done in After Effect."
