View Full Version : Making of "Dr. Maxwell" by the Keytoon team

12-10-2004, 01:35 AM
From Valencia, Spain, the guys of Keytoon Animation Studio present the making of "Dr. Maxwell", designed and modelled to be an animated character for a series of shorts the studio plans to do. So far you can see the animation tests on CGTalk (thread 187089 (http://www.cgtalk.com/showthread.php?t=187089) & 192562 (http://www.cgtalk.com/showthread.php?t=192562)) but take a moment to read (http://www.cgnetworks.com/story_custom.php?story_id=2633) about and see the process from concept, modelling, texturing and lighting while we wait for the first animated shorts to come from Keytoon!

Read the article >> (http://www.cgnetworks.com/story_custom.php?story_id=2633)

Thanks Alex, Jaime and Jonatan!

Very rich in render, concept and facial animation.

I see that others have asked about how the point helpers are rigged. I want to know the same. Any references to this type of facial animation?

I know about a year ago there was a thread here at CGtalk in the 3ds Max section that covered some of the basics. I can't find it now. Anyone knows where there is info on this facial animation method, please speak up.

GREAT WORK. (this is flattery, now please give some help on how to get started)

Awesome work, and great to see it rendered with maxwell render!!! :applause:
