In the end, the setup is exactly that. The intensity of a light in their belly was linked to an hidden object in the rig that moved between y=0 and y=1. That way, the animator could give personality to each monster with a simple “breathing” curve. LookDev_Monster Benoit also took some time to create awesome mood boards to help the client, and the lighting artists, to visualise the final look of the shots. Here is some of those mood board followed by some look dev. for comparaison. 2D Mood Board_001 Final Render_001 2D Mood Board_002 Final Render_002 2D Mood Board_003 CompWIP_003 Final Render_0032D Mood Board_004 Shading and lighting dev_003Shading dev_004Comp WIP with the glowing monster_004 Final Look - applied on every shot_004Final Render_005 SHED is a visual effects studio and post-production which dedicates its expertise and excellence in the advertising industry, film and television. Our craftsmen are passionate and creative, they push the limits, they innovate to make your stunning images to go beyond your expectations. http://shedmtl.com/en/  blog  http://shedmtl.blogspot.com/
