Vivinion

What is a vivinion ??!

A funny mix between a minion (the French movie Despicable me) and the famous video game mage vivi ! (from one of my favorites video games : FFIX).

I’ve made this project in Blender for the modelling and Maya/Vray for the rendering. I used Maya Fluids for the flame, in order to have a simple/cartoon effect and not a realistic flame. I animated the texture in the power ball too. The final idea was to make a kind of figurine, with a on/off switch which is here to activate/deactivate the fame (maybe a lamp?).

It is rare that I’m trying an original design, moreover a character, but it was a really cool experience. The animated version is on my demoreel.
