Nova's Crystals Test
Description:
This is a test animation that I created using Daz Studio a couple years ago. My primary focus was on volumetric lighting, fluid animation movements, and a basic walk cycle. The character, Nova, walks up to her crystals and levitates them using the Force.

About Daz Studio:
Daz Studio renders/animations are works of art ultimately created by one person, but are possible only through the efforts of many artists pooling their resources to aid in each other’s artistic visions. As such, I’ll list specifically what I am responsible for in each image/animation in this gallery.

Credits:
I am responsible for all animation, modeling the character’s headpiece, painting her skin texture, creating her character morphs (face and body shape), creating all of the texture maps for her clothes, modeling and texturing the crystals along with their base, and setting up the scene.
All other 3D resources are from the marketplaces at Renderosity, Daz3D, and the independent vendor Terrymcg.

Software Used:
Daz Studio
Autodesk Mudbox
Autodesk Maya

Additional Credits:
The character depicted in this animation is Nova Akosah, a Star Wars fan-created character created by Raikoh-illust. He has given me permission to use the likeness of his character in this instance.
