Hi All, feels good to be back here for a challenge. I am going to try for individual video category.

Idea: This idea has been in my drawer for a long time. Hope this is the right time to realize it.
In hinduism, Kalki is the tenth and final avatar (great incarnation) of God who will bring to an end the present age of darkness and destruction. He will establish a new era based on truth & righteousness ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kalki)

So I will try to fit this TENth and final incarnation of God in current/near future setting and explore how he can be fitted in that environment realistically.

The master rig for the characters. I realize I have some crowd scenes. So I will have to re-use a lot of animation here and there. I hope after texturing this will suit my needs.

Here is a small video for the rig :

Adrian, Toni
Thanks :)
I have been trying to upload a wip video, but getting an error message. I hope the problem is resolved soon. Meanwhile, here are some screencaps from the video. I would call it 60-65% of the whole thing.

Ancient Hindu scriptures speak of 10 incarnations of God. 9 have already come in past ages . The tenth and last is supposed to come in the future.

As one of the ancient verse reads :

"Whenever righteousness declines, and unrighteousness increases I make myself a body.
In every age I come back. To deliver the holy. To destroy the sin of the sinner.
To establish righteousness."
