Check out this amazing personal project CGI short created entirely by Lei Lin! This was a huge undertaking and Lei spent approximately 2000-3000 hours on it. For more information, please see the details and links below:
He did all from the concept art, to modeling, texture, rigging, fluid simulation, animation, lighting, rendering, composite.
He used ZBrush and Maya to create the characters and environments, and Mari for the texture. For the character rigging, I use Maya muscle and Posedeformer and some trick to simulate the skin sliding.
He used Realflow simulate the fluid (water, splash, foam, fog, cloud) and use Maya hair system and shave to simulate the hair and fur.
He used Arnold for rendering with the average rendering time was about 4-5 hours. I have a Dell server (8CPU 4 units), and used nuke for compositing.
