Tried to explore subtler acting with this piece and found it extremely challenging. I don't think I was completely successful but it was a great learning experience.

Ran out of time before I could try to match the final render to the paintover

Shane Kreiger

Over the summer my friend Andrew and I worked on this character project which turned out to be too big to complete before college started again. We may or may not ever get to finish it, but I just thought i'd post about it anyway. We both developed the idea, Andrew did a great job modeling it and I designed and rigged it. I was also going to animate it based on the thumbnails I did below but barely got started on the blocking. With only a standin jacket and no pants or textures, the character is still pretty unfinished. ( He does have some nhair facial hair though :O) But we did have a lot of fun working on it!

My friend Andrew and I are collaborating on a little summer project. I designed this guy and Andrew will be modeling it and hopefully he will be animated soon!

Sit Stand

school's over!
well, sophomore year is. It's been one insane hectic year especially towards the end. 
For the summer I plan to take a break and go back to college to work as a Teacher's assistant for the summer precollege program. 

Here's my final from my CAII class and some process..
