Beast eating a corpse - Personal Animation


This was a wip I was working on back in 2009. Recently I heard someone applying to a major studio claiming it as their's so I figured I'd host it up properly.

Beast concept by Peet Cooper, refined by Justin Albers and modeled by Ed Hardison IV.

This was a fun project and looking back, I'm bummed I didn't push it further. However, I learned a lot during it's progress. A lot of the tools developed for this are now standard in my setups like, cluster curves used on the intestines, FK chain overlap used to add shake to existing controls and the start of my dog leg setup.

Good times.
