These are parts of my multidisciplinary project of Howest (Sept 2018 - Jan 2019) - I was a part of a group called The Collective as a last year 3D/VFX student of DAE. 

The Collective consists of 12 students: 4 students of DAE(Digital Arts and Entertainment, only one 3D/VFX student), 4 students of Devine(Digital Design Development) and 4 students of IPO(Industrial Product Design). As a multidisciplinary team they worked on a project about mobility of the future.

I animated and re-textured this rigged model. I have also made a hair sim with Maya Xgen and nHair. This animation was eventually visualized on a Holovice ( Rendered with Arnold (Maya).
