Screen shot v 1.5

Here is a revised version of the screen shot, the other one might have been too bunched up, let me know what you think.

Videogame screenshot!

This is my final for my "Game Modeling" class. I think it will get me a good grade. It's called Wisdom and Wickedry. Our witch here, lives in the glass forest, and is currently out trying to catch some bats. The key ingredient in her families famous Vampire Potion.

Matierials and Lighting Midterm




He gave us a concept and told us to make it the best we could in a few hours. I won a Fight Club tournament with this little puppy, the competition was fierce.

the timing is a more than a little off, but I think it gets the point across. The teacher said that we had to animate someone dieing, I think this fills the requirement.

1st pass title sequence for my game idea

so far this is the coolest looking 3d animation that I've done, I'd like to go back and really refine this and make it into something that actually looks great.

my old toy box for homework



This is my first fancy textured 3d model. Teacher said to create our own textures for a crate with mental ray and this is what I'm turning in. It's not perfect because I had to create part of the texture in Photoshop with image I found online.

I had about 30 Ninja Turtles, He-men, Thundercats and a few Micromachines stuffed in this old Toybox when I was growing up.

These are the environmental concept pieces I created for my game production class called "Game Wizards". They are for a Steam Punk, FPS called Boiler Plate. I'll upload some screen shots and other art I did for the class later.

speed-model #1


I'm a little rusty, but for my "Game Modeling" class we did a speed model based of a giraffe and a bulldozer. This is what I came up with, it took about 2 hours to make. It was also voted best in the class by my fellow students!!!

Game Wizards!

This is the G4 spot that featured Game Wizards (the class I'm enrolled in as a concept artist) I would embed the player but I don't know how to do tricky stuff like that.

This is the first cartoon I've ever made, it was mainly done as an exercise to introduce us to the idea of moving objects across a page in a simulated 3d space. My instructors name is Norland Tellez.

We had to give our sack some personality, so I decided to make my sack a trigger happy religious fanatic. Our instructor had a few requirements for this assignment, the sack had to get scared, and run away, and meet it's demise.

4th quarter portfolio (BIG POST)

















This monster post has a little of everything, each piece is labeled for the class that I did it for. For this portfolio I received an outstanding portfolio award for Summer 2007. It was an honor to be recognized.

Dracula Must Die

This is a board game I created for a class I took. I created the idea for the game as well as all the art it took to bring it to life. It is 2-4 players, co-op or versus. The object of the game is to find the items you need to destroy Dracula without being turned into a vampire. My favorite part of this game is that it doesn't end when you die, it just gets more fun.

Set Extension project


This is for my matte painting class, we had to take our own pictures, and extend the image by 1/3. We also had to add some damage destruction to the image, and several other things. This was done in Photoshop.

family dog color script pass 1


This is for my storyboard class. We were given a 2.5 page script and told to turn it into a storyboard. We started scribbling on post it notes, then we did some blue pencil roughs on larger paper. After cleaning up the rough work, we had to pick 9 panels of our story to color. This is the first pass, once i make a few adjustments that the teacher suggested, I'll post the second pass.

progression

This started out as a little sketch for a background design, then turned into a snazzy photoshop painting, and ended up as a 3d model, the textured version will be coming soon.

I work at a coffee shop




Sometimes I feel a little like this guy. People are usually pretty serious about their lattes.
