What if your tiny and grumpy chihuahua had the body of a gorilla? Would it be the most vicious monster with the shortest attention span ever?

I modeled this bad boy in ZBrush, props in 3dsMax, textures in Substance Painter, UVs in 3dCoat, coded a hybrid (biped/quadruped) auto-rig in Maya using Python, made facial expressions from 46 FACS Action Units, animated in Maya, groomed with XGen, rendered with Redshift and did the post in After Effects!

Project done at the Digital Creature Animation - Technical Direction course at Sheridan College.

30s animation at vimeo.com/358672066
All details and making of at www.artstation.com/artwork/XB0…

I tried to submit the movie file to DeviantArt, but it is not possible, unless you are a core member. :/
