Lighting/Compositing Demo

Hey Everyone! This is a lighting/compositing Demo in Maya by Giroldi Francesco who did the animation "The Monk and the Monkey". Suzanne directed us to it. I haven't looked through it yet because it takes a while to load with my internet connection, but I figured it would be a good thing for everyone to see! Enjoy :)

Our First Look and Feel test for textures!


So the basic plan at the moment: 
-solid color and gradients in Zbrush via polypaint
-export texture map to photoshop
-blend layer with paper texture over top of texture map
-simple line details (clothing seams, patterns etc) painted on yet another layer
