"Inspired by classic stop motion specials, Found You is a 3D animated short film where the characters are designed, modeled and textured to look like stop motion puppets, and composited into physical miniature sets." - Found You Kickstarter
I was recruited to the Found You team as a digital modeler in 2021, where I worked with texture artist Mitch Alano and rigger Marijane Vargas to create both Lucy's human and werewolf form for the film.

I used a combination of Blender 3.0 and Zbrush to create these models, while the final renders were done in Autodesk Maya for its flexibility in final compositing.
With creating characters meant to be superimposed over a lit, 2D background, it was essential that I kept the scale and textures lovingly designed by the visual development team which is all the more aided by the stop-motion style of the final animation.
