Yulija


Yulija Turnaround from Kevin Waddell on Vimeo.

After working for Confetti Special Effects , I took it upon myself to re-rig Yulija from the ground up with a more intuitive control system, who previously was being animated directly with Maya joints.

Yulija was used for an Intel tech demo shown at GDC 2011, which can be seen here

In that video, I was responsible for:
- Yulija and the guards facial animation (using Maya blendshapes)
- Rigging and animating the flying robot
- Animating the guards
