Keyframes by: :iconseerum: :iconjeffreylai:



This was one of the first shots finished during my run on Battleborn.

The robots were the toughest element to nail down. Their design changed midway through production and had to be updated later than I'd have liked. Was still worth doing. :nod:

Aside from directing and compositing this shot I also assisted on FX. Did the electrical parts that you see on Rath's sword as well as the lighting on the explosion.

3D Modeling: David Chung a.k.a. dchung

Color Design: Mike Chung a.k.a. balloonwatch

This animation was made using Adobe Photoshop CC 2015, Adobe After Effects CC 2015, TVPaint, & Maya

I forgot to ask how long did it take you guys to animate this piece? This is a lot of work I can see though.

It took about a year for us to get through nearly 13 minutes worth of cinematic. Not all of what we did made the cut, but it still counts as work done.

the animation where he pulls his sword out, deflecting a bullet with the upwards flourish and then again on the downwards swing looks so freaking nice.
