Demo Reel Class - Project 4 Orc

I used this project for both my demo reel class as well as my shave and a haircut. Shave definitely was difficult, and hard to master. It was also hard to translate the loose drawing of the armor, but I tried my best to capture the dips and flow of the metal.

Demo Reel Class - Project 3 WIP

Update for previous character for games project

This is just an update for the maps I made for my character:




Demo Reel Class - Project 2

I wanted to try doing a bust of a character this time. This concept is by Sakimichan. I have a lot of changes I still need to make, but overall, I enjoyed doing this piece and the way it turned out. I guess my biggest challenge was to match the zbrush camera to the maya camera.

Demo Reel Class - Project 1

 The concept on the bottom is the "Forest Gulper" by Wayne Barlowe. I experienced some difficulties with lighting and creating the forest floor environment. But overall, for having two weeks, the creature sculpting was fun and I also enjoyed the texturing of the creature.

Term 5 - Character Development

I absolutely love Andrea Adams' class. We chose a Shakespearean character, in which I chose Shylock from the Merchant of Venice, and was tasked with creating my own version for another world.

The world I chose was one of nomadic culture and tradition, one that has more advanced space faring technology, but still holds close to their culture and religion. For this version of Shakespeare's character, he holds onto his religion for the sake of tradition. He is bitter, hurt, and separates himself from people, burdened with tragedy with the elopement of his daughter, but he still remains strong and carries his sense of pride which is largely due to his beliefs.

Thus he travels around, carrying his wares, still bitter, but deep down regretting his fight with his daughter and hoping to reunite with her as she is the last of the family.

I settled on #2 and #5 as they captured the character the best. the pose and silhouette of #2, but the confidence and strength of #5 captured my idea of shylock the best.
Color studies to see what is more appropriate for him.
The silhouette of Shylock is to show someone that is burdened, yet strong.
Tired eyes
Weathered hands

The dagger is a tradition of his culture, it is the symbol of unity of two families. He keeps one part of the blade and the other piece is with his daughter who ran off.
