Tea Dwarves was a solo animation project created as a part of the Animation I class. 

The project was modeled and animated in Maya, textured in Mari and rendered in Redshift. Effects were created in Houdini. Compositing was done in Nuke.

The breakdown

I drew inspiration and learned from a scene from the Hobbit. Though I thoroughly studied the 30-second clip I've picked, I tried to create my own visual interpretation of it, where dwarves are mischievous teabags, Bilbo is an antique and posh alarm clock, and Gandalf himself is a rusty, yet kind-hearted coffee maker.
