Two weeks ago I was assigned an animation for the Bank of England. I had to create a Charles Dickens character lip syncing a famous quote by the writer himself.
I used Z-Brush for this project and then I retopologized the mesh in Maya.
My character mesh is composed of two objects, a head and a torso.
I then created some blend shapes and proceeded to the animation. Overall it was really enjoyable to use Z brush for the sculpt and the blend shapes in Maya for the lip sync.
