Shoe Love

Screen Shot 2015-02-25 at 6.09.16 PM            ..I realized my love for shoe the day when my little brother mentioned that I should make my own shoes.  I liked something or the other in every shoe but dint feel like I owned it until it had some special feature in it.

Years passed….. and then me stuck working for so loooong on my thesis, I felt trapped and wanted to do something quick and fun.  I thought of making a pair of whoopee comfortable shoes.

I quickly modeled and textured it and then tired to make my shoes do moonwalk on theme song of 2Broke girls.   I still need to animate the end part of the song.  But for now just a quick playblast and one frame render.

Few updates in my thesis blog

This is a video to match the light and environment form the HDRI.
Made a quick model in maya and did the texturing. And then put together different passes and render layers of maya in nuke to composite.
