This is the sketch design animation, I created for SCI Channel rebranding project for Nailgun*, Inc.
The logo is polygonal modeling made by Maya. The rig is setup by Maya Blendshape technique.
Texturing, lighting, animation and multi-passes rendering are also made by Maya and Mental Ray.
The animation technique I used : Blendshape + displacement map texturing keyings, in order to achieve the look of mysterious organism material.
Compositing and motion blur FX are produced by After Effect.
