A Walk and a Dive

Here are the most recent 3D animations. A walk and a dive, 3D animation is much different then traditional, but the principles for the most part remain the same. I heard that 3D makes the easy stuff in 2D hard and the hard stuff in 2D easy. So far that seems true.

First Time in Mudbox

Here are some renderings of a pot. I didn't make the pot itself, just textured and painted the thing using the program Mudbox, and then brought back into Maya. Mudbox is quite the cool program for painting objects from Maya, although I heard Mari is better. Just haven't gotten around to learning that one yet. I was playing around with bump mapping, and possibly overdid it, since it looks really rusty. Although that rustic look is kinda cool. Lit it in Maya with both an area light and skydome light using an HDRI photo; then rendered out using the Arnold Renderer.

Some Drawings of Things

Some sketches and a few life drawings. Haven't been drawing nearly as much now that everything is in 3D land.
