Inquisitive by Cymae Inquisitive by Cymae
This is an image my fellow tutor ~HunterKi11er and I made for our college, :iconanimationcollege: to use with their new branding!

It's one of four images used for the initial launch, each featuring an emotion. I'm pretty stoked to have worked with such a talented bunch of people.

Check out the others in the series too:


*AnimationCollegeNZ also have a spiffy new website which features this (and the other three images). You can find them at animationcollege.co.nz so make sure you go and take a look!

I did the 3D character in Maya, put the passes together in After Effects and passed it on to ~HunterKi11er, who did the gorgeous coral, background and a bit of extra touch up work in Photoshop, then passed it back to me to do the colour grade, lens effects and compositing in Photoshop.

We put a lot of effort into getting the eyes looking really nice and captivating, they went through several iterations and colour schemes.

The full resolution the image is A2 (4960x7016 pixels), as it had to be large enough to scale up to a billboard if required. As you can imagine, we had a lot of issues with render time and file sizes. It was rendered in passes and it took about 16 hours overall for 9 character passes. The final Photoshop file was about 1gb and very slow to open.

Overall about 3 weeks worth of work (but totally worth it!).
