For the heck of it

I made this poster for Sean's film because I felt like it.
Two things to note:
1. That may not actually be the title, I just thought it sounded cool.
2. You'll probably want to click on the image so you can see it full-size.

I was experimenting with style, and this image happened. I'm posting it because I like it. Oh, and it's a demonstration of the rig for the robot... even though it's not moving. Anyhow, the robot model/rig etc. is completely finished and ready for animation. Now onto other elements!
(The robot is the only thing in the image that's actually 3D so far. I did everything else in Photoshop.)

Sean's website is here if you wanna see his demo reel:

Lemme know what you think!

More Conceptsy Stuff

Here's a quick turnaround animation of a 3D mockup I did for Sean's film. This probably isn't the final model or the final look, but we're playing around with visual styles to see what would look cool with a very contrasty graphic style.

(MOV, H.264 compression, ~2.4mb)

I'll keep posting updates and tests for this project over the next few months. Even if we never use this model, I'm still gonna rig and animate it... because I think it's cool ;)

Sketches n' School n' Stuff

Hey, everyone! I'm back at SCAD for my last year of college (though I'm still trying to wrap my head around that fact).

Should be a great year, I already like my classes this quarter and I have great ambitions for... everything, actually.

Example: I'm working on a bunch of school-related projects right now. One such project is my friend Sean Farbolin's senior film. I'm helping him with the style of the film, and ultimately will probably be modeling, rigging, and helping composite the 3D pieces of it as well. Here's a few designs we've come up with for this sort of "dystopian patrol officer" concept we're trying to figure out:

-early designs

-designs we kinda like

-one of my favorites

-the design on the lower right is closest to what we'll probably go with thus far.

Also, here's a few quick caricatures I've done of my roommates Matt and Sagan (in that order), just trying to really push my exaggerations:

...oh, and here's a creepy drawing I did, and a caricature Sagan Lacy did of me this past summer for fun...

-by Sagan Lacy

That's it for now! I'll post more stuff as I make it. :D
