Painting of Anna Kendrick

I recently found the time to watch Pitch Perfect, and really enjoyed the film.  I decided to go ahead and do a painting of the main actor of the film.

Painted using Photoshop

Samsung Galaxy SIII

Here's a model I made of my Samsung Galaxy SIII.  It was made last year as an example model for my students in the Hard Surface and Organic Modeling class.

Modeled in Maya.  Rendered using Mental Ray.

It's been a long hiatus

It's been a while since I've last updated this blog.  I feel it's time I start updating it again.  A lot has happened since my last post.  First off, I started working at Maxis in August and have shipped a title while working there as a 3D Generalist.  The company has been great!  The people are awesome, and I get to work on a franchise that I've adored as a child.  It's always nice to be able to work on something that you've only dreamed about working on since childhood.  I can't say we didn't have any hitches during the launch, but we can only hope it goes much more smoothly next time.

Here are a few other pieces I have worked on.

There were plenty more pieces, but I just don't like them that much anymore.  Tis the life of an artist.

Drawing for my Grandpa

This is a drawing I made yesterday for my grandpa. It's graphite on 18 x 24 drawing paper. I just used a 4H for the line drawing underneath, 2B for the majority of the drawing and a 4B for the darker areas.

New painting for Dua

Medium - Wacom Intuos 4 and Photoshop CS5. I sure do love the Blur's Good Brush. It just makes laying down color with texture so quickly. I also like how much they resemble traditional mediums. As usual, I start with a sketch and colored it in afterwards. I kind of like that mixture of styles. It's kind of interesting to see how my style has changed through the years.

Nikon d200 Model

Started modeling the Nikon d200 camera. I'm teaching a hard surface and organic modeling class this quarter and requiring my students to model a digital slr of their choice. I figured making them a model for reference would be good too. Why the D200? A student sent me an email asking me how I would approach modeling some parts and I decided to keep running with it. I started this earlier today and taking random breaks in between.



*Update
Was super lazy after the first post of the camera and only worked a little bit on it. Fixed some issues on the model after finding some better references. Maybe I should have modeled the camera I actually own instead of finding pictures online. I suppose that would have been the "smart" thing to do haha.
