PET HATE character design "Tortoise"

PET HATE set design/lighting study

I did some work over a year ago on a CG short called Pet Hate, directed by Andy Clarke. Blog's been a bit neglected lately, so up it goes...

The director had very specific ideas about how the film would be litthe script mentions "a shaft of light" in the dimly lit shop that "shows up the dust"so this set design doubled as a lighting study.
