just completed my first year in the 3d course.   (im still waiting on grades, hope i pass to move onto 2nd year)

learnt a bunch of stuff in the first 5 months and we applied it to a robot arm animation.

everything is 100% my work from what I have leant so far.  I had 4 passes at the animation and decided to go with the last one.

30 second limit
has to pick and drop the box or object
needs a reason to pick the box (story)









still a lot of things I could of done to improve it but this is what I manage to do and hand it in on time. 
I really wanted to do a pincer claw (like the ones in the arcade) and I think I mange to achieve it but the size of my claw restricted a lot of my movement.

PreVis  2D to 3D

this was my end of year final project.  it is basically a pre production "first pass"  just to see if lighting, timing, camera angles and a few other things come together.  
limited to 30seconds. 

first my character design and story board. 


then my 3d version.  i think i made the stroy a bit more clear.

King has some goss for you guys, if you care to listen

So as you know im working on a game.  I had the idea to make a top down plane shooter; one level.  It is simple, within my abilities and something i could get done in a relatively short amount of time.  It is something i wanted to add to my portfolio to use to apply for jobs and i could also try sell it on the side.   If there was enough interest i could work on the rest of the levels and it would be my full time job.
anyway I pitched the idea a few months back to a friend and he was all on board.   Present day, he has been working on writing up a story for it and for some reason because his story is "so amazing" it needs to be a more complex game .  he wants to make it into a full blown 6 axis plane sim  with full animated cut scenes, cockpits, multiple planes and charaters, high res terrain, VR etc.....  his also got it in his mind he will surly get a dev grant of 20k USD and he wants rent a office space, hire voice actors, animators, riggers and more.

we haven't even started making the first level and we are armature game devs and he pretty much wants to make starwars battle front.   he doesnt think it is any more work and he also laughs at all my ideas about making mobile games to maybe get cash flow on the side to help fund bigger projects.

anyway  he is the kind of guy that would blow a companies budget, so; in the words of shark tank "im out"

more funny stories

So at the beginning of the year i did my first internship.  It could have been a good opportunity for me since the company was suppose to get their first movie deal.   6 months go by and we never got the green light but the movie is still scheduled to come out March 2018.  Apparently the the producers thought it was necessary to spend 3mil on big budget actors for a film that only had a 9mill budget.    

During the 6 month internship, i went in and worked on my boss's personal project, that would eventually be apart of the companies portfolio to help with getting more jobs in the future.

I was basically tasked to build an alien city, 40ish buildings.  It sounded cool and interesting; something i would be proud to show off in my own portfolio.  Problem is, concept art was..... shit....  Everything is literally suppose to look like dicks and pooh.  A city of dicks.  

I was polishing a turd... and it wasn't something i could use to apply for work again.  So I quit and worked on the spaceship and 2 other things.  

Anyway, I grinded out a new portfolio, got myself a interview and as of this week iv completed my first week in my first ever paid job!!!



here is a work in progress of one of the buildings i worked on at the internship.
