How I Animated this Stylized Underwater Scene… in Blender!

This underwater scene was one of the funniest scenes to work on from this explainer animation project. Dressing our hero character up in different situations is always a blast, but this was one of my favorites.

The challenge in this project was creating a convincing underwater scene fitting for the animation style. While keeping in mind the budget. (Time and Cost)

So that asks the artist to be creative and smart about it. I think we did that when using compositing tricks to quote-unquote fake expensive effects, like caustics and volumetric lighting.

Blender can handle those extremely well, but sometimes during a project, you need to consider other things too.

All the little additions stacked on top of one other make this a lively underwater scene.

Would we have done things differently sure, in hindsight that's always easy to say
