My second animation project for 2023, completely done in Blender 3.4. Another collaboration with Rudi Hendrich (link below) who did the background scenery for the project.
The spider rig features an automated additional experimental armature that allowed rapid animation of the simpler shots with only a few keyframes. This is in addition to the FK/IK switchable rig for the more complicated movements.
The bubble features a "thin film interference" shader similar to the one I used for the wings of the Damselbot, and produces a very pleasing effect.
There's lots of stuff going on in this, so it's worth having a few goes. If you'd like to see it in 4K, go here:
