About the Project

This short animation conveys a simple message 'breaking cultural stereotypes.' Dragons are generally considered to be ferocious, fire-breathing and destruction causing creatures. However, the dragon in my animation breathes out sparkles and spreads joy.

Project Development

I came up with the concept of this animation and used Autodesk Maya to animate a dragon rig which was downloaded from a website for free.

I also modeled the 3D environment of the cave and textured the environment in Maya. Lastly, I added some particle effects to complete the animation.
