Artella, the animation collaboration and virtual studio platform, is giving away two new rigs to the CG community. Lily and Snout are optimized for VR production and were developed specifically for this purpose. “We made the first webVR short with an incredible crew and our hope is that people will take what we’ve done and create their next series of their adventures”, says Artella CEO Bobby Beck.

Artella worked in partnership with Sketchfab to create the first webVR animated short film Lily & Snout in just nine weeks with an international team of 12 artists collaborating through Artella’s virtual platform. The character design, modeling and texturing for the rigs was done by Carlos Quintero, and the rigging by Zach Baharov.

Lily and Snout are compatible with Maya 2015-2017, and can be downloaded here.
