That, was absolutely brilliant! Loved it, do more please!

Loved the way he disintegrated and the camp fire with the lightning look really great!

Do something of, I dunno Murloc meeting a Zealot from Protoss and the same way something happens to him that would be great!

Yea, we talked about making squeals.
Its just that they take so long to do especial when you work during day, he he.
Glad you liked it. We'll se what the future holds.

awesome work Fred!
I think that overall the lighting is possibly a bit too dark (especially around the fish on the stump) hard to read what it is etc.

The particle effects look a lil flat to me,

animation and everything else is stella

Yeapp you are so right. I think I have to up load a brigheter version.
Youtube DESTROIED the grading.
Its not suppose to be that dark actually.
I'll just fix that tonight.

Lighting too dark?! I don't know what Darken-R ( is talking about he's only an animator ;)

I think what you guys have done looks really cool, but I have to agree with Darken-R ( I think the particles could have a bit more form and take on the colour of Murloc and transition to the colour of the fish. Also would be better integrated with a subtle glow and and light up the surrounding. I would probably also try adding a very subtle moon/rim light from the left in front of camera so you can pick out some details a bit more. Animation, model, texture all looks good.

For me the hardest thing to achieve is to have an actual finish personal project. So you guys have done really well way better than most people including me. Well done and look forward to your next project.

Sweet, Thanks. Both of us has bad experiance with particles so maybe next project we have to outsourse a great vfx artist that can make some cool stuff. Thanks for all the ideas and imput they will all be taken in to future projects.

Hey, BLizzard. Hire the guy!

They can't, his Cinematic is nowhere near of the standard of what Blizzard expects.

Thanks guys for the nice words. Hopefully we will find the time to do more of these projects. It's really a good way to learn new things. :)
