    As would we all XD the idea of it being possible to create in real life was the foundation of doing this project haha. but it would be great craftsmanship indeed and probably a few months of work if not years. Enjoy the model!

    I used your model here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DhLWtsvCDTE

    Unfortunately I don't have a video camera that is very good for motion capture. But it turned out ok I think. :)

    Fantastic! Detail Intensive! When I saw video I thought, "Oh No They Didn't." But no they Did. Really good and Just 3 months? And you guys are about 17 to 20 ? or less. You will no doubt collaborate often through out your lives. Good on ya, and much success.!

    Well thanks :) yes my brother and I were kind of stunned by how well this prank was received... we just did it as a fun 'quality time' project before I moved out of the house... by now we made 9Gag, Kotaku and got over 70k views over the past 2 days.... it 's insane but lucky non the less. Thanks for your kind words and enjoy the model! :D

    Hello, it's an amazing model and animation. I've downloaded and I'm trying to add skydome but never shows sky texture, is there any trick in the project to show that skydome texture? Thanks

    Amazing short!!! An absolute Blender noob myself, but have taken on a fairly extensive project tho'. Yet your little masterpiece here, makes me think anything is possible. - And with some determination the still composition I'm aiming for, containing spell casting wizards, snow covered mountains, modern high rises and a medieval castle... All done in Blender - may just be possible :D Great piece of inspirational 'Blending' you guys put together.

    Hey, this is really nice. I'm looking forward to building it physically using a 3D printer, but need some help with the proyect, since I'm good at machines design but horrible at designing good-looking objects. If anyone is willing to help, just send me a message.
