The Showdown

Vray final, collab with my amazing modeler friend Daniel Kho (, finally finished! It's been a long 10 weeks and we learned a lot from this project. Basically, we were inspired by the work of Ashley Wood and his line of toy robots. So we chose two of them: Bramble, the green robot, and Bertie, the black one. Then we thumbnailed, concepted, and boarded a few variations of the shots. After that, we modelled, textured, lit, and simmed the effects in Maya, rendering most of the scene with Vray except for the effects which was done in Mental Ray. We also used ZBrush to sculpt some of the details, Mudbox and Photoshop to texture the robots and the scene, and Nuke and After Effects to composite it all together in the end. All in all, it was a great learning experience and a lot of midnight snacks...

 Update: And here's the breakdown!
