Lotto Max Bear | SHED

Posted May 07, 2018

Montreal's SHED tackled the challenge of creating a beautiful family of bears with 'bigger than life' personalities - finding a balance between stylization and realism.

SHED used Houdini in a wide variety of ways, including character FX (fur creation and grooming, sliding skin using a cloth solver, etc), environments, lighting/lookdev, etc.

One of their key highlights was that it was 'great to have a software where the fur and snow sim could interact together'.

    I loved it, I loved it all.
    SideFX I cont with you to improve Houdini for Character Rigging and Animation.
    I want to see more and more characters like this in Houdini.
    SHED thanks for share with us this beautiful work.

    Beautiful work. Interesting that SHED accomplished the organic tissue bulging and sliding using just the cloth solver and CHOPs rather than more specialized FEM and muscle tools.
