I modeled,textured,lighted,and did a camera flythrough, then composited it in after affects.. I know a lot more about modeling and texturing now. I think I will do a 2009 with a actual creature now. Hope you enjoy it.

it was a rain effect. When I rendered out the seen in maya I made sure there was a alpha channel that cut out the window parts. When I composited the scene I had the maya scene on the top layer, the rain effect on the next layer,then the background. I think I also multiplied or overlayed the rain effect layer and background so it blended in nicely. It was really simple actually.
