Hand Turkey

> Maya, Mari, Zbrush, Topogun, UVLayout, Nuke // Winter ‘14
The concept for this piece is to recreate common motifs in kids drawings photorealistically, with the focus being a hand turkey. Responsible for all aspects except animation (concept/storyboards, modeling/sculpting, rigging, texturing, lighting, compositing, cinematography). Turkey animation courtesy of Anna Zeng and Debbie Scheller.

Carnivorous Flower

> Maya, Mari // Spring ‘13
Everything in the scene uses subsurface scattering. Responsible for all aspects (modeling, texturing, lighting, compositing, and camera animation). The HDR background was a free photo from HDR Labs.

Death of Marat

> Maya, Nuke // Spring ‘13
This piece is based off of Jacques-Louis David’s The Death of Marat. It takes place about a week after the murder, when the body has been removed. The goal of the piece was to replicate natural lighting. Responsible for all aspects (modeling, texturing, lighting, compositing, and camera animation).

Food Study

> Maya, Mari, Zbrush, Nuke // Spring ‘13
This was a study of Mental Ray’s subsurface shader. All the food uses the fast_skin shader. Responsible for all aspects (modeling, texturing, lighting, compositing, and camera animation).

Hugo Mood Match

> Maya // Winter ‘12
This full CG scene was a lighting study where the goal was to match the mood from a shot in Hugo. Responsible for all aspects (modeling, texturing, lighting, compositing, and camera animation).

Opening Box Projection

> Maya, Nuke // Spring ‘13
This started as a still photo of a box, and is opened with projection mapping. The inside is CG. Responsible for all aspects (photography, modeling, texturing, lighting, projection, compositing, and animation).

Marshmallow Match to Live

> Maya, Nuke // Winter ‘12
The marshmallow on the right is a full CG twin of the photo of a marshmallow on the left. Responsible for all aspects (photography, modeling, texturing, lighting, compositing, and animation).

Life Drawings

> Winter ‘12
These pieces were done in Winter 2012. I used conte crayon and oil paints on 22” x 30” Rives BFK paper.
