Highly-Realistic Cat Animation Made With Maya, ZBrush & XGen

The creature was made by Massimo Righi, rigged by Sanjeev Dhama, and animated by Vaibhav Trivedi.

Massimo Righi, a talented Creature Artist who specializes primarily in creating realistic 3D animals, has unveiled Black Cat – Walk Cycle, a lifelike animation sequence depicting an adorable cat walking directly into the camera.

The project's description states that the project was made collaboratively by three different artists, with Massimo providing the model, Technical/Rigging Artist Sanjeev Dhama rigging the digital creature, and 3D Animator Vaibhav Trivedi setting up the final animation. To create the project, the artists utilized Maya, ZBrush, and Arnold, as well as XGen, which was used to set up the cat's fur.

Here are some earlier renders and behind-the-scenes shots featuring the same model, shared by Massimo a few months ago:
