Ambient Occlusion is MORE THAN AWESOME!




Here are some pics of the same model in the previous post, except using the ambient occlusion rendering. It really has a cool look and I think it more clearly shows some of the details of the model.

Thanks for swingin' by.

Pimpin' the Pizzaria

So here is my 15 seconds. This one really came down to the wire. I am not trying to make excuses, it's just that this needs a whole lot of work. 15 seconds is extremely tough to plan and execute in a week, believe me.

For all those who cannot tell what is happening:
Jimmy (the pizza guy) does not feel like being at work. He's lazy and unproductive as usual, until some jaw dropping ladies enter the shop. He's now out to impress, and it all goes wrong, big time.

My plan is to redo this, get all of my timing issues figured out, and there are a lot of them, and make a nice polished rough pencil test, that can hopefully carry some weight on my non existent demo reel. Suggestions and criticism are all appreciated, so let me know what you think.

Thanks for visiting.

Jimmy Dumbdoor...The Pizza Guy



I will be doing 15 seconds of animation for my Animation 1 class, with this guy, Jimmy Dumbdoor. In his own mind he is way cool but to everyone else he is Jimmy Dumbdoor. This will be my first attempt at animating with a character, so I don't really know what to expect. No matter what the results I will be posting it, so I will definitely try mi best. Hope you all are looking forward to it. Thanks for visting.

Initial Amsterdam Environment Studies










I have been begun developing some environments of Amsterdam in Maya, and have been having a great time with it. I am pretty new to Maya and it seems like it would take a while to learn, but with a little dedication I think anyone who has turned on a computer could have a little fun with it. Feel free to give your criticism. I am completely accepting to both positive and negative feedback, so I assure you, you wont hurt my feelings. I hope you all like the work. Thanks for visiting.
