3D Character Modeling and Animation

In a final project for class, I was challenged to create an original 3D character and animation. This is the final short film self-written story about a character that I modeled from start to finish. I created everything from the storyboarding, character drawings, modeling, texturing, lighting, animation, and editing.

Organic and Synthetic Modeling and Texturing

In a project for class, I was challenged to create original organic and synthetic random theatrical props for my final film. I chose a squash and a wii remote. I'm particularly proud of the wii remote. In general plastic surfaces are easier to make look more realistic in 3D animation. The squash has a slight bump map to create various dents in the skin.
