Here is a teaser of a new 3D Animation that is currently being developed. While so far I have concentrated on sharing finished 3D Animations, I think this one deserves a mention (and possible others as well). I enjoyed the lightning, the textures and dancing πŸ™‚ – Can’t wait to see more of this.

It appears that they are currently utilizing both Newtek Lightwave 3D as well as pmG messiahStudio.
