I finished this some time ago now and its been up on youtube for a while but thought I'd plonk it on here too lol! I did a skating animation yearrrrs ago, and thought I'd have a laugh at doing a 2nd one as the characters were always fun to animate and play with and my animation abilities have come on a little bit since then.
The piece took about 8-10 weeks of spare evenings to animate and about another week to edit together. Its modelled, animated & rendered in mentalray with maya. I used contour rendering together with ambient occlusion shaders. The audio is Medicine man by Playgroup
