Smiling Friends Season 1, Episode 8 featured an extended sequence with Satan, a character rigged and partially animated by Man of Motion.

Smiling Friends is one of Adult Swim’s biggest-ever hits, with the premiere being the most-watched episode in Adult Swim history, and it already being renewed for Season 2.

Rigging and Animating Satan was not particularly hard, given that I have a battle-tested pipeline and the animation was relatively simplistic. But it was made much more challenging by the time constraints placed on me. My timetable for rigging and animating my portion of Satan was 3 days. In addition, Maya was not the end DCC, the animations had to be cached and sent to Blender for final rendering for the show.

I’m proud of this achievement and being part of such a successful show!
