This is my final demo reel from 3D Modelling & Motion Capture at NSCC. Pictured above are the pieces I created for my final project, a tower defense level kit, some of which are featured in my reel. Thank you again for your interest in my work!

Showreel, December 2015

This is my classwork showreel for December 2015. It contains models and lighting assignments from September to December 2015 (with a couple exceptions) that I did while in the Game Development programme at the Nova Scotia Community College in Truro, Nova Scotia.

Fueguy

Questionable name aside, this is a character modelled from a design by one of my traditional animation colleagues for her final project. I was intrigued by her interpretation of these elemental characters (one was fire and the other was water), and what I wanted was to create a layered model that would eventually be able to honour the original, fluid animation she had done.

Level/building Model

I sculpted this terrain using Maya’s Sculpt Geometry tool, and then UV mapped/textured it.

That dark area in the corner is a short tunnel which leads up to a path, which loops up to the top of the hill where the bridge starts.

The best part of this scene was the little house on the ledge. It was fun to try to give it a more weathered appearance, which stemmed from the inspiration I took from the cabin in The Evil Dead… it was October at the time.

Interior scene model/lighting

One of our assignments was to model and light an interior scene. I found this to be one of my favourite projects, and I actually think I may have improved the appearance of the room over my original reference photo. Here’s that one:IMG_2800_primaryReference.jpg

Here’s my final render:

And here’s a shot of the other side of the rendered room:

The materials are mostly mia_material_X, except the duvet cover, the lampshade and the fabric on the stool. The photo outside comes from MattĀ Sutkoski’s WordPress blog.

Here are some of the objects from the scene:bedroomPcs.jpg

Again, I really liked modelling all these pieces inside of a finite amount of space; I felt it allowed me to have a tighter focus than an outdoor scene which gave me more control over what everything looks like.
