Weiss Concert – This Life is Mine

Here is the full version of Weiss Concert – This Life is Mine.

I’ve been wanting to do this for a while. Weiss is a favorite of mine in RWBY. If you don’t know the show yet, it’s all available on Rooster Teeth’s website.

I had put out a teaser 10 months ago, but put the project on ice in favor of Theseus since over 9000 frames just wasn’t feasible at the time with my resources. Even after an hardware upgrade, it’s still a bit ridiculous: 14 days of renders (time during which I lose my pc to create the pictures) if you count only the ones that made the final cut. Easily a month if you count all the retakes to try and get the simulations to work. I guess I was willing to bite the bullet to see it done.

That being said I can now move on to a new project and do better!

Cheers,
David

Weiss Concert – Entrance

I loved This Life Is Mine from RWBY and really wished I’d gotten to see the full Weiss Concert. Of course nothing stops me from using learning hair and cloth dynamics as an excuse to work on it right?

Here’s a proof of concept I did to check if my RIG, cloth and hair setup worked and how heavy the renders are on my PC. As it took 3 days for my PC to render those 20 seconds, I’m pretty far away from the full 5 min song, however the setup does hold up pretty well. Much better than my previous attempts with xgen hair in any case. Learning to sew Weiss’ dress in Marvelous Designer was a nice candy bonus.

Anyhow, let me know what you think.
