Hey all. I am starting to work on some political cartoons to mirror the upcoming elections in the US. This particular one was done on Fred Thompson, a recent nominee to the seat of President. I have developed a workflow which cuts my modeling and rigging time down quite considerably which I will post here in the near future. For now, check it out and let me know what you think!

Watch it here on YouTube (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2U4QrbauAYY)
Or MetaCafe (http://www.metacafe.com/watch/894564/fred_thompson_campaign_ad/)

Or full quality .mov (http://www.headastate.com/EpFredL.html)

This was created with Photoshop and Maya. Total work time from start to finish was 1 week

I like it. I like the pinched look of the face and how the animation works with it in that odd way. Can't wait to see what kind of things you do to make the process go so fast :)

Thanks a lot. Don't think this is going to be a hit on CGTalk considering its politically oriented and most people have their heads buried behind a computer. Regardless I am planning many more of these on the current set of political candidates as this particular one has been getting thousands of views..

Check out my other post (http://forums.cgsociety.org/showthread.php?f=154&t=551028)where I have a pretty impressive political cartoon.
