"The Snow Button" is a short and quick animation I did in 2012. Most of the work are done in Blender3D, except the snow are AfterEffects particle.
AnimationI have upload the animation in both my Youtube and Vimeo channel.
ConceptThe original idea of this animation is base on an artwork I did earlier. The original plan for this project was to model like what I have in the artwork, a 3 head size character without eyeball. But I decided to change it to a chibi 2 head size character.
Test RenderBelow are some WIP shots showing the early stage of the model and toon shader. In later stage of the production, I felt that the head is abit too big, so I scale it down slightly.
I also did some test on render settings, playing around with different freestyle stroke setting. From LEFT to RIGHT: No outline, Thin outline, Thick outline.
In this animation, the background environment will be minimal. I am hoping I can achieve a simple but stylise art style.
