Creative Review shadow play CG animation

Inspired by shadow play, this stalking tiger appears from the falling shadows of delicately floating feathers.

“CG is a great tool for creating this kind of shadow play as the lighting replicated in the CG scene and the shadows it creates are faithful representations of how the shadows would be cast in a real life installation” explains CGI artist Simon Allan.

“By looking through the viewpoint of the CG light source each feather could be moved or rotated individually in order to ensure the shadows fall in the right place to create the stripes of the tiger’s coat. The challenge was always going to be creating the face of the tiger, as this requires moving smaller feathers by tiny degrees to form perfect lines.”
