Dinosaur animated short - Breakdown

A herd of dinosaurs trying to survive the end of their world.
In this video, I will show you the various elements needed to complete such a project.
Since this is a behind the scenes video, I don't go into details about each step but I consider this to be a good guide for the categories needed to learn, in case you want to create a similar project.

All assets used in this animated short were created in Blender & Photoshop.

Main Skills needed: Sculpting > Retopo > Rigging > Animation > Simulations > Shading > Matte painting.

Note: The rig is not anymore available for download since Blender has evolved a lot in the last year. With new features added and performance improvements, the project file does not meet the ideal standards for inexperienced blender users learning from the new and improved versions.
