Mancandy Has Grown Old

Check out this little piece to promote the Blender Institute’s open movie called “Durian“.  The video is a cool and funny concept.  It does make you wonder what kind of character or thing the man is talking too.  I’ve been an avid watcher of animations that used Blender as their tool, and let me tell you, it has come a long way.  The facial animation is probably the best I’ve seen from Blender. The render is done well too.  If more professionals use it, the whole 3D world will be turned upside down.

The small piece was created by David Bolton.  He used a pre-existing model/rigg called Mancandy (opensource) and added his own flair to. Kudos for making something old new again.  This is also shows how when you focus on an  area (this being animation), the quality will always be great.
