    El Jimador : Day of the Death

    3D Artist, BUCK Design, Inc., El Jimador, “Day of the Death”, TV/ web campaign, 10-2017

    Credits: characters' outfits look development, shot glass lighting, and end tag character lighting.

    This was the most interesting project I had ever done! Let's celebrate the biggest toast to the world together!

    For this project, I did the look development for the characters.

    I worked with my 3D supervisor, Bill Doris, for this shot. I am in charge of character rendering.

    I did the base texture and material for the El Jimador bottle and assemble final render passes for compositing.

    I lit this shot glass in Maya and composite it in Nuke. 

    BOTTLES, BOTTLES, BOTTLES! Concept designed by Amelia Chen and Base model was done by Bill Dorais.

    Our senior lighter lit this beautiful shot, I was in charge of the outfit texture of the Mariachi. 


    Below is the turntable for all the characters.
