Took a break from skiing for a day and chilled in the hotel lounge to sketch on my new ipad.

The cut scenes in this game were done in both Maya and 3D Studio Max. I was given this scene which ended up being the longest scene with the most characters in the game. Unfortunately, the entire thing had to be done in 3D Studio Max on the Biped Rig which is the worst rig to work with. And because the scene was so long, and the time was so short to work on it, this was my one and only scene. Please excuse the walk cycles as there was no time to do a proper one so i was told to just make the legs move. In the real version, the camera cuts out the legs. Still, it was a fun project to work on though.

This was a short film one of my supervisors, David Weinstein, had made and i thought i'd share it with everyone. David is a veteran animator that has worked at ILM on Star Wars and tons of other productions like Valkyrie, Matrix, and Wolverine. He is an awesome supervisor and a all around great guy. Hope you enjoy his film. Go to youtube to see it in HD.

This was an animation test i did over 2 years ago back when i was working at Crazy Pixel Prod. It was suppose to be used as a buffer right before a tv show came back from a commercial. The tv networks' mascot was a squid, hence the robosquid. i edited the sound effects myself for fun.

i decided that its safe to post this animation test now that the company i had done this for is no longer in bussiness. this was a test to be used as a pitch for a potential tv show. this was done in about a day. i only animated the character, lighting and rendering was done by someone else. thanks for looking.

this piece was done as a Valentines Day present to my girlfriend. I started this 2 months ago and it was a challenge to get it done on time without her knowing, especially since i see her everyday. one of her favorite animals is an elephant and mine is a sea otter. my gf rides motorcycles so there lies the inspiration for this piece. love you Amo!

back when i was at my old job, i was asked to design a character for a short film that will prob never see the light of day so here is the finalized concept. it might resemble another character you've seen, but i didn't have any say in how he should look...............i just followed orders. The CP guys know what i'm talkin about ;-)
