A drop of oil into Vaseline

A scene from a Vaseline advert that I created. The most difficult part of this was to create the droplet and have it release from the dropper without the use of particle simulation. I eventually created about 8 different blendshapes in Maya and animated between them to get the look I was after. I setup the lighting and shading from scratch using Vray and composited the final render passes using Adobe After Effects.
