This is the project I developed during the Digital Character Animation program at Vancouver Film School in the last semester of 2009. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as I did doing it.






While deciding the final details before going into the storyboard, I've been working on this bike - one of the essential assets of the story.





And this is the same model with the toon shader and outline, plus the comp.


I decided to give a 2D look to my short film for two reasons: my passion and admiration for classic cartoons, and extra freedom to play with composition and layout (the well-known 2D eye).
  

Thanks to everyone who helped me achieve this.
Couldn't have done it without many of you.

 Let's keep pedaling!

Fur Test

This is a quick fur test. Using Mental Ray Volume Shader for a faster render time and dynamic hair curves to drive the fur movement.
