Acela.

Express

After our success with Smart Car we decided to try our hand at an illustrated 3D approach to promote the Acela Express. We designed a cast of characters, then set about the task of modeling and rigging them in Maya. Meanwhile we designed and created the Acela world, also in Maya, applying a huge array of original illustrated textures to create the final look. What a ride!
