M1-Abrams Texturing

I’m finally getting a chance to get this tank textured.  I’ve been running into so many things that I’ve never had to deal with before so its really slowed down my production time as I only have evenings to work on it.  I will say that because of every new obstacle I’ve learned so much! […]

M1-Abrams Sculpt

It took me awhile to get any headway on this since these past few months have been jammed packed with family stuff.  My oldest brother got his Masters!  Woo Hoo!  Now that things are starting to settle down again I got a chance to work on this again.  I finally wrapped up sculpting this tank […]


I got a neat offer from an old co-worker to model him a tank for a old school style “Scorched Earth” game he’s making.  He’s creating an XNA tutorial book on how to make this game.  The trouble is he needs it sooner rather than later and gave me almost no lead time.  I decided […]

Cyan Update!

Here is an updated shot of Cyan, I’ve been running into roadblocks along the way that I’ve had to deal with but he’s finally baked with light/normal maps. I’ve gotta take  break because I’ve gotten an interesting offer to help out on a tank for a XNA tutorial!  Cyan will be finished though for sure! […]

Back in the saddle

Man its been crazy these past few months. A lot has happened since I last posted. I graduated form college, got a new job(unfortunately not in 3D art!), and a pretty painful loss in the family. Now that those have passed and life is finally returning to a somewhat normal state, I can finally get […]

Models! Oh my!

I was finally able to rope my brother into helping me get my website compatible with all the browsers!  So I can finally publish the updated Models page!  I’m so happy with the way it turned out even though its not 100% finished its close enough to publish.  With a few more tweaks for polish it should […]

New Layout

Man its been awhile since my last post So it was time to reorganize this site to better serve as a portfolio.  I think I’ve achieved that thanks to my professor and with the help of my older brother.  I tried my best to dumb it down and simplify it and I think I’ve done […]

Cyber Assassin walkthrough video

Our team leader got around to putting this video together for us to put in our portfolios.  This is a real quick walkthrough of what we were able to accomplish in 12 weeks. Although he dies at the end that is the end of the level, and a simple screen would come up saying “Mission […]

Chrono – Concept

I started mapping out a project for a little short animation awhile ago to help develop my skills as an animator and to experiment with different methods of modeling.  I decided to do things right by starting with concept art.  You may recognize him, this guy is a total stud.  Chrono Trigger, the game of […]

Xenia – Concept

A group of my classmates decided to join in some healthy competition.  We decided that we will design characters and then as a group decide who’s was the best.  We’ve been helping each other on and off over our winter breaks.  So I decided to try female villain character.  And this is what I came […]
