I wanted to make a terrarium inspired Pokeball with charmander in it.
Charmander is my favorite character in the series and had fun sculpting him in Zbrush.
I also made a small pokeball opening as a fun idea.
Pokeball opening animation. Rendered in Maya and comped in After Effects. Used an optical flare and 2d glowing animation overlay for the pokeball opening animation.
Charmander and Props were modeled in Zbrush, Maya and textured in Substance painter.
