I liked those intro title screens that Smash Bros have been using to introduce their characters. I wanted to try and fake a full 3D rendered model look. My plan was to colour the image flatly in photoshop and then place a lit 3D Maya model shadow on a multiply layer. So I imported the image into Maya and model a simple version of the Mickey image.
Unfortunately the image was imported onto the Maya plane at a different proportional ratio which meant it didn't match up to the original photoshop image. So I ended up having to cut up the Maya image and move bits around. So it didn't wok out as well as I hoped.
