Absolutely beautiful bird. Realism remains through the entire sequence. I'll bet an animation would be a huge challenge. Great work.

Thanks Guys,
The client only wanted to use certain frames from a sequence.
Maybe I will render it out, it could be interesting.

And it is going to be a lenticular print.

There's not so much secret about this project.
I did the modeling part in LW and Zbrush. This raven model is based on an older project so I had to revisit some things, for example the UVs. I unwrapped this time properly which I hate to do and I only do it when it is absolutely neccessary but ZBrush UV master is so easy to use and along with PLG and modeler I could relatively easily pull this task off.
The rig was also ready, it is a simple totally FK driven LW rig. Nothing special.
Feathers and FFX. Feathers were added one buy one, ore bunch by bunch.
I dont want to talk about FFX. Its speed is unacceptable. 9.6 rendered fast but controlling lw9.6 ffx is worse than a nightmare.
In a quick paced production I had no time experimenting with 10.1 FFX, it was just utterly slow.
Cheers.

Couldn't agree more, I had my share of nightmares myself with a relatively simple model as well. Hope to get my hands on LW11 soon!
