Body rigging work I did on King Pineapple and the Toppings on a TV Pilot for the Ratchet & Clank TV show.

Sometimes you work on something and it get cancelled...until it doesn't ?
A few years ago I worked on this project at Mainframe Studios (ex Rainmakers Studio) and this was the first project they put me on.
Who get to say they rigged the king of pizza toppings in their career? Mighty ruler of the pizza-verse (filled with 367 topping's pizza), King Topping defend his subjects against any invaders from another dimensions.
This was mainly a body rigging asset, the facial rigging being 2D planes following the body's deformations. It's about the same formula for the toppings subjects even if multiple models exist for when they are bitten or not. In the end the 2D animated textures really sells the personality of those delicious creatures.

While on an inter-galactic pizza run, Ratchet and Clank discover that the diabolical Dr. Nefarious has developed an interdimensional portal device that would allow him to rule the entire multiverse. The intrepid duo spring into action, liberating the "Portalizer" from Dr. Nefarious and then racing off to securely lock it away in a weapons museum. But along the way, they run into bumbling Captain Qwark, who uses the weapon to accidentally unleash a sentient-pizza-topping mob upon the citizens of Galactic City. It's up to Ratchet and Clank to battle the savory horde and keep the Portalizer out of Dr. Nefarious' evil hands before he uses it to destroy the galaxy.

Ratchet & Clank: Life of Pie is an animated Canadian short film in the Ratchet & Clank series. It was written and developed by John Derevlany, directed by Mike Alcock and Craig George, and produced from Mainframe Studios (formerly Rainmaker Entertainment) and PlayStation Originals, previously responsible for the Ratchet & Clank movie.[1] It is not canon to the video game narrative.
