School's Over... For Good!!!

School's finally over! We graduated!!! =D It's such a great feeling! And I'm once again apologizing for the lack of posting. I posted absolutely nothing this entire semester. But not because I haven't been working, more because most of what I did for the past three months was stuff that can't be shown right now (and I probably wouldn't anyway! =p) Hopefully now I'll have more time for personal projects with school out of the way!
And just to end the non posting streak, here's a model sheet for Redle, which I regrettably only had time to clean-up after the 3D model was done... Maybe I'll go back to that later.

Painting in 3D

Final (?) Version of this project. An attempt to make one of Gil Elvgren's pin-up paintings into 3D... Sculpted in ZBrush, posed in 3DSMax, reworked and decimated in ZBrush, then rendered in Max... Here's a breakdown (Thanks Steff for showing me the rim light trick...)

Also, I never really posted any progress on this, so here's roughly how it went (I know it looks really scary in some stages)...

Update on Ollie... Might have to knock the detail on the diffuse a little bit, but that's life...
Please watch in HD because the regular quality is really bad...

Farm, Slowly but Steady...

Small update, with some compositing (Yeah, it was supposed to be a night scene...)

Because this blog is not yet dead, here's some progress on the house... More to come soon...

Yet another WIP, this time completely unrelated to our senior project. I started working on this last summer, then stopped, then came back to it recently. This is a fairly old iteration, I'll post the final when I'm done rendering. =p

Sorry for not finishing the Alien yet, but I had to take a break from him to work on one of the environments. So here's the very beginning of our house and corn field. Now I have two posts to update! =p

Ollie the Alien

Update! =D

Our final project is finally coming to the fun part! Too bad it won't last for too long, so I'd better enjoy! =D Anyway, here's the start of Olie the Alien. I'll post my progress as I go.

Based on this awesome design by Tara Mueller. Check her website here and her blog here!
