Facial movement and speech can be the most difficult part of CGI animation, but the guys behind The Lord Inquisitor 40k fan film appear to have things well in hand as they show their first speech and facial tests.

First Speech and Facial Tests

This test footage gives us some idea of the attention to detail that goes into creating these realistic characters and ensure that their movements and speech are of a good quality. This can indeed be a problem as shoddy facial animation and dialogue that doesn’t match with lip movements can be incredibly jarring to watch.

As well as giving us a bit of insight into the creative process, this small bit of footage once again lets us see how the atmospheric lighting and texture is coming along. All in all, once The Lord Inquisitor is finished I would say we are in for a fantastic looking film.

How do you think this fan project is shaping up?
