Have fun looking through my work.

Wilhelm is a project focused on exploring and applying the technical elements of Unreal 4. It has at its base a model done in Zbrush based on Wilhelm, a character from the 2D short "The Reward". It presents complex material transitions as well as a varied range of particles that as a whole create the magical effect of Wilhelm coming to life after being in a crystallized state for centuries.

Video shows the transition between two states of a character, crystallized and human. Several Particle systems serve as trigger for it and emphasize it as it reaches completion. This project was done with Maya, Zbrush, Topogun, UV Layout and Photoshop for the character which was brought in to the Unreal Engine where the particle systems were added to it. . The the subUVs and meshes for the particle systems were created in Maya and After Effects.

0-737 The blueprint used to attach the particle system to the spline that goes around the character was given to me by a friend.
