It appears I never mentioned this incredible show I had the immense pleasure of being part of last year at Dwarf Animation in Montpellier! The show just released few days ago and is already topping the charts!!! If you haven’t checked out the show on Netflix yet, here is a trailer in the meantime and I will update this post once I have a bit more time with plenty of links to the work of all the great artists that were part of the project. They were numerous! Netflix allowed us to make a kick ass show and it is amazing to see that they are also all-in with the marketing of “My dad” despite our ..read more

New week, new Tip #03 for my Maya Free Tricks series: “The Power of Alembics” with a new animated intro and music. Follow the hashtag #freeMayaTipswithMoustache on Linkedin to stay updated and don’t hesitate to share. If you don’t happen to work at a top feature studio, it is quite unlikely your rigs are fully compatible with Maya’s Cache Playback or Parallel evaluation so working on shots with several characters can be extremely painful and slow, unless you know about Geometry Caches and Alembic caches for example. Here is the link to my GitHub profile page and GPU generator script ..read more

I am one of those art snobs whose goal is nothing less than to be able to draw like the late Kim Jung Gi and only rely on my imagination to create work. It doesn’t have to be that way! If like me, you are only at the start of your artistic journey, this mindset can hinder your efforts and be detrimental to your progress. We take for granted that all the best work is created from imagination and undermine how much research and references can participate to the creation of the most exciting artwork. Kim Jung Gi himself was not creating art out a vacuum, instead he was digging into a mental lib ..read more

I came across Electric dragon505 AKA AniMat’s Youtube channel a while back while looking for Disney documentaries and immediately subscribed after watching his monumental 11h31 Disney History masterpiece video essay! AniMat is very knowledgeable and also a great watch for his regular no-hold barred Animated Features reviews with which I tend to agree. Today I just wanted to single out his 5 years old Top 10 Animation documentaries. There is a possibility it would be a bit too Disney centric but at least he is mentionning some documentaries that are a must have for Feature Animation lovers. P ..read more
