A quick update on the studios progress. With the completion of our character rigs the studio has been busying themselves with animating and lighting. Unfortunately we were victim to the delightfully buggy Maya 2013.5 extension meaning 10 seconds of animation is only accessible at uni but we have persevered.
We also now have all the texture maps completed with two versions of the environmental maps so that the scenery can change accordingly as the characters interact with it. As planned the textured were painted and sketched by hand and scanned back onto the computer to create as realistic effect as possible.
