Clinging to a frosty mountain side, a lone climber faces the elements while battling his inner demons. Will he survive? Will he reach the summit? Do you even care even at all even?
My pal Alex Deaton had a goofball idea about a guy climbing a mountain. On a whim we decided to make it – and make it as dramatic as possible. Alex sketched up the character and put together an animatic. I did all the modeling/rigging/shading, Alex did a bang-up job animating our little friend, and I finished up with final compositing and color.
This project was an opportunity for me to explore some new challenges in CG: character modeling / rigging, texturing in Substance Painter, + lighting / shading / rendering in Redshift.
