This fascinating animation highlights the characters of Street Fighter II such as Guile, Ken, Chun-Li and of course, Ryu, with abstract and geometric forms. His reason for creating this animation was to teach himself Cinema 4D and Vray as well as his inspiration for it:
Here’s an animation I did in order to teach myself 3D software programs. I used Cinema 4D to build the animation and Vray to render it out. The animation is inspired by the work of Quayola & Memo ‘Forms‘ as well as the Cadbury Olympics job in my ‘Projects’ section. I really loved the aesthetic of each piece and I really love Street Fighter, so I smashed them together.
In his video description, Dan The Ad Man additionally explains:
While I setup up most of the geometry using tracers, Xpresso and Thinking Particles, I had some help along the way from the following great resources…
I edited the motion captures from this archive >>> sites.google.com/a/cgspeed.com/cgspeed/motion-capture and used Microsoft Kinect for some parts aswell
I tweaked the character models from >>> thefree3dmodels.com/
Sound effects we’re mostly sourced from >>> freesound.org
And the music is obviously from Capcom’s Street Fighter 2, play it here >>> itunes.apple.com/ie/app/street-fighter-ii-collection/id459660048?mt=8
