Support beams

Some support beams for our laboratory.

GDC Portfolio Reviews

Went to GDC this week and had my portfolio looked at by  bunch of companies: Crystal Dynamics, Valve, Ubisoft, Insomniac, Irrational and WMS (They make slot machines). Feedback was mostly positive with some good crit about what to add and take away from my portfolio.

Additionally the application process for Riot Games involved punching this thing as hard as you could:

Model a Week - Gecko

In-progress of my Z-brush leaftail gecko. Sculpting Dynamesh is kind of the most fun thing ever.

Elevator Door

Textured the moving door that leads to the elevator.

Space Grass

Textured some grass. Space grass. With space dirt. And accompanying space plants.

In space.

Modeled and textured this elevator for our group project. The further we go the more this turns into a horror game rather than a futuristic sci-fi sort of a thing.

Model a Week - Tire

Was following along with some tutorials before I realized that my version of Z Brush doesn't have panel loops. Tried to fake it but uh... didn't go so well.

The assignment was to make a 6 second looping animation for a Baker. This ended up being about 20 seconds because just him rolling out dough seemed boring.

The model is Norman and I made him a chef hat and some props.

We got this castle to UV and texture within a few artistic constraints. All and all it came out pretty good, but I wish I had more time to fix the front gate.

Z-Brush Treant

First time mucking about in Z-Brush. I found this neat picture of a Treant on the Interwebs (Apparently he's concept art for the game Rift), and tried to make an armature for him out of Z-Spheres.

Lab Textures

Textured the lower walls and pipes for the lab along with the upper floor pieces since you can see the underside of them when you're below. I didn't model the floor pieces.

Updated Dreamcast Controller

I'm gonna be refining this for the rest of my life apparently. Cleaned up to 5766 Tris. And now with a low poly version to project onto.

UDK Lighting

Started lighting up our scene and adding some props. Texturing next!

Dreamcast Controller take 23 billion

Restarted this at least 4 times since last week, but finally done. I'm happy with how it looks smoothed, but the mesh is still a bit wonky. 9819 Tris.

Cave Rock Texture

Instead of hand painting I tried some super heavy photo manipulation this time. Tiles in all 4 directions.

Model A Week - Treasure Chest

Matt Elser drew a bunch of really cool treasure chests that I've been modeling. Here's this weeks along with his drawing.

Tweaked a few things and UVed that cannon from last week. Gonna try and texture it soon.
