This is my firts vehicle model and rig in maya that I'm currently working on. Before I start this project I observed my wife's 4wd vehicle's front and rear shock absorbers, springs and other moving parts :). After these "beneficial" observations I drew a simple storyboard for desert animation. Now, I have retouch all 2d textures that you cant see in this screenshots and videos. I hope you like all visuals.
Looking forward to your opinions.
