Cool ! As finished VFX challenge I'm in

Neat! I am just learning Maya myself, so I'm excited to try my hand at this challenge!

I assume based on the galleries from the past challenges that we're allowed to texture, do additional modeling and dynamic effects, etc,? Are there any other rules or anything else that's not allowed?

I'm definitely going to give this one a go. Man, I haven't touched Maya in a while! Good luck, everyone!

Ok here we go

Here is my first render. I need to texture the kid, and refine the texturing on some of the seats.
In terms of the overall lighting I'll try to stick with something like this, I do not want it to get too bright. I might add some lighting coming from the ceiling. I need to texture the exit door. This is a cool set CC are welcome.

Here is another one WIP ver02

Hello Everyone,

I still need to texture the kid however I refined some of the lighting all across. I have some lights on the ceiling, the lights below the speakers and the light coming from the screen.

I'll see what I can come up with next. CC are welcome!

thanks renesh. Yes, i will work on that part too...
Will do the texturing and shading part first.

I think I will have to play more with the composition. Will try with different cameras.

Just a start. Trying different textures and lighting. Never did anything with a character before.
C and C welcome.
