Wanted to do a short to this piece of music for years (metamorphosis by philip glass), so it feels good to finally nail it and feel like i've got at least some of what I first saw when I heard it the first time.
Here's some stills from it anyway:
the animation is available on either vimeo or youtube.
Vimeo has a link to a .mov, but it's a bit big - couldnt get h.264 to not mess up my gamma whatever I tried.
Used 3dsmax, vray 1.5 & combustion. Few photo refrences for the details, some textures taken myself and some from cgtextures.com
Done over the course of a couple of months at work, although it was split up into 3 main chunks of work each lasting a heavy week or so - what with real jobs to do, a girlfriend to keep happy and me taking no priority on the farm it dragged on a little...
Crit most welcome :)
