Hi! Thanks for visiting my website. Here is a selection of my work. For more in-depth information, see the Projects page.
Prehistoric reptiles, pterodactyls and cavemen in Jurassic level of Bad Day for a Balloon Ride game made at Chaos Created. I designed and rendered the characters, environments and assets of this game using Photoshop, Corel Painter, Filter Forge, Modo and Keyshot. I rigged (converted the 2D assets to custom meshes, skinned to skeletons, created IK constraints, used free form deformation where appropriate) and animated them in Esoteric Spine. Finally, I assembled all the environments in Unity game engine. More details here.
Promotional artwork for Splemy game made at FormerDroid. Enhanced representations for each of the three game chapters, which were also adapted as screen savers for mobile phones and as vertical banner for print. Designed and digitally painted in Photoshop, Corel Painter and Filter Forge. For part of the work, I modeled 3D assets in Maya and rendered in Keyshot to use as base for digital painting. More details here.
