Winter 2013

Its been a great Quarter Ladies and Gentlemen,

I have made some good progress over this quarter and its time to have a wrap up of all that has happened.

my first jump was in a class called team game production where we work on a student concepted project for  6 - 9 months. our last project which was just finishing up at the end of this quarter was Modus Operandi where you take the role of Detective Morris who is looking for clues on the bloodshot killer.  My contributions for the project were in the design of the HUD and main menu. I also was the Concept and Design lead for the past 3 months on the project.

However since the project was coming to and end our teacher had students pitch their ideas for next quarter... and my idea was picked! It is an environment piece set in a desert trade city. I wont go into much more details until it is more fleshed out but I will show you all some of the concept work;
Concepts I worked on
Clothing Concepts

Points Of Interest ( Rough)

Overhead Map

Concepts done by others
Environment Concept

Priest Concept

Guard Concepts

My next accomplishment was passing Pre - Portfolio here at college. I feel satisfied that I passed but I still have to get through one more quarter before I'm in the clear.  Here are some of the renders of my work;

And for my last hurdle I finished my first Facial Animation.  We were tasked in creating a facial animation from a 10 second sound file of our choice.  not much else to explain except for watching the finished product;

That sums up Winter Quarter but be sure to check back for more updates and leave any feedback or comments!

Cordially Yours,
