LEGO Toothless Medieval Castle Attack
LEGO Animation done with Houdini and Vray.
The goal for this project was to combine a number of different tools and techniques. The soldiers and Toothless are setup fully with Houdini crowd, while the castle is setup in RBD all within the same dynamics system so that they interact. The RBD will trigger the ragdoll on the crowds.
There is some clever tricks done to all the animation to get the stop-motion look and feel. Thanks to the crew at cgwiki for advising on this.
Landscape is done with Quixel Megascans and it's all rendered with Vray for Houdini.
