Spoil Boy

This is a render I created for a short film I am making titled “Spoil Boy”. As you can see he is quite spoiled. At this point in the story he had just tried to gain friends by demonstrating his new rocket. As he set it in flight from his window high above the playground below a malfunction occurred and it crashed causing chaos. The children threw the rocket back knocking the boy back down his toys. With disgust he sulks on his toy box with his ruined toy. As the narration reads for this scene: “He didn’t care if they’d sway. He didn’t need them anyway. At least that’s what his mommy had said…” And the door bursts open with mommy handing Spoil Boy a brand new shiny rocket. Check out all the sweet 80s toys. There is lots of detail. This was made using Maya and After effects. All the toys are in 3d gathered from various free model sites. Below are wireframes as well as a very prelim and rough house. Enjoy!!!

A Stormtrooper Portrait

When I created “Stormtrooper Invited Home Early” I made a portrait. Here it is in full rendered form with a few tweaks. I thought the concept of a portrait was funny but wanted to create a little more of a story as well. Maybe this was a wallet photo found on the battlefield. There are lots of details This was created in Maya and Composited in AE. I used Photoshop for final adjustments. Enjoy!
