A Test I did

So I was given the photo references and I had a day to model, texture, light and render in a day.
I was told to keep the textures simple.

The countdown has begun

I have my final portfolio review this coming monday at 8:40 am and hopefully nothing will go wrong.
So I started texturing my Zee brush piece today and this is how it looks right now.

As was suggested, I decided to replace the base with a rock so it looks like this statue was never completed.  I like the story telling aspect it gives. I am just experimenting with the rock right now. I am looking to create an interesting shape.

ZBrush Sculpture WIP

This is my zbrush piece that I started in Zbrush with Zsketch first and then brought in 3ds max and added hands and feet. Then brought back into Zbrush and posed and now I am sculpting. I haven't gotten the change to start working on the hands yet and while I was posing the model they kidna lost their shape.

More Reel Progress and Comic Con& Siggraph

Last week was absolutely awesome. I was lucky enough to attend to San Diego Comic Con and Siggraph. I met with amazingly talented people, got to show my reel around and got some feedback. I also got to sit at some very inspiring panels. I feel like last week was a pivotal point in my life and I feel so much more motivated now.

So this is a little progress on my reel I still have close to two months to work on it. Additionally, I am working on a ZBrush sculpture right now that will go in my forest scene. Hopefully soon I will post some renders of it too.

I was trying to get this ready by Siggraph even though I have 2 months to finish working on this I still wanted to be able to show my reel at Siggraph 2010 but, ran into some technical problems and I didn't have the time to render the reel in the right format. but atleast it's up here.

Fixed some issues.

I cleaned up the ghosts from the first scene. It's not haunted now so hence there's not a single flying object anymore like there was in the previous reel.

Some old 2D works of mine

For me before 3D there was 2D, I started drawing and painting before I learned 3D and I still try to paint as much as I can in my free time.  Perhaps that's why I enjoy texturing, because it feels like painting to me.

VFX assignment 1

So for my 3D VFX assignment I am doing a scene very much inspired by the cinematic trailer of Diablo 3. This is the scene so far, I am working on the particle system that's going to go into this scene.

Turkish Coffee House_ finished model

I am done modeling this environment I believe and now I am going to start texturing and lighting. It turned out to be a lot bigger environment than I thought initially.
