Ridin’ the big one

This image started out as a sculpting project as I wanted to get a better grip of the sculpting techniques inside Blender. When Assembly 2014 drew closer. I decided to expand the project to make an entry for the graphics competition there, so I modeled and rigged a diver to ride the sculpted goldfish. Alas, the entry did not make it (landing only 0.25 points under the qualification limit, darn it). Still these  fellas were a lot of laughs to make, and I decided to never the less complete the project.

• Programmes: Blender 2.7, Photoshop CS5
