these are always such a treat when I get to watch them, keep them coming man, seriously.  I loved this movie before watching these breakdowns of it, but now...I just am beginning to understand the depth this film has.  Thank you for that.

I did a quick sketch this evening, just a block in, and a lighting idea using BPR, very rough. I purposely left the head really roughed in because I might tweak some forms and don't want to get that locked down

Project Emily Realtime
I downloaded the emily project from Wikihuman and decided to see how I could turn her realtime.  After some testing with knald and having to create a lot of maps from scratch I came up with this inside of marmoset. Its pretty nice. hires: http://i.imgur.com...
