Rebirth 

I've always wanted to tell stories and exploring worlds through character animation. That's why I decided to take some free time to create this short animation. I plan to make more short stories in the future. I hope you enjoy this one.

In an alternate world where second chances are vital, A West African masquerade (EgĂșngĂșn) visits a magical realm to reincarnate himself the 10th time

It's a belief by the "Yorubas" that the dead have a continued existence in our world. They never let go.
Will this be an endless loop?

The Rebirth !!!

Behind the Scenes 

After I figured out the Idea, I first gathered some reference images of ``Egun`` that I can find online, and made the cloth design in Marvelous Designer

The first design was a daylight scene, but It felt a bit boring, I decided to make it a night scene which I feel it was better. I animated the character in C4D and exported back to Marvelous designer to simulate the colth. From the whole process, the hardest part was making the cloth in Marvelous designer. That took a while

Behind the Scenes 

Majority of the beauty light was done in octane render, but I did some minor comping in After effects just to give the scenes more depth. I feel I could have spent more time at the comping stage, but overall, I just have to let the project go , lol
