Avatar Challenge!


Got some work coming up with ZBrush and Goz to Maya. So I thought I’d try to get a head start on trying to figure out ZBrush a little. I’ve had the program for some time but never really played around on it. I decided to take up this "Avatar" challenge I came across on a "Simply Maya" forum. Basically you have to create an avatar in resemblance to the movie “Avatar” from someone you know or yourself. So here’s the beginning of Rebecca as an avatar. Once I get the main features down,.. I then go into full avatar mode with modeling, color and texture I have til March ,..So it should be fun!


As for ZBrush... I really feel like it can do almost anything & everything traditional clay can do,... It’s a matter of finding and knowing where the tools are. Then, having patience to learn to use them to it’s full potential.

Old work,.. but a new post!

Alright’.. so it’s been awhile since I posted anything. Truth is I’ve been crazy busy, While also trying to enjoy the short month off. I decided to post a few things that are really old. Keeps me thinking I’m doing a good job with this blog,.. even though I’m really not.


But look for some cool things coming soon... working on three different projects at once...fun stuff!


This was my first modeling, texture mapping, animating and camera movement with the 3D program Maya. Looking forward to the advanced lighting and texturing project which deals with a more involved texturing & lighting techniques in an environment....

This was for an FCP editing concept class I took the first semester of school. It was basically an exercise to edit to music, tell a story of sorts and find ways to expand limited clips with a per-chosen song for us. I lucked out with the Rolling Stones

Bil-Mar Fish Mural


Keep’n pretty busy, I landed a few things...more than I thought I would,..which is awesome! Now I just got to bunker down and finish them!


This is what I’m working on at the very moment. Bil-Mar Club in Manitowoc needed a refresh of the mural they have in their trophy case. This is a digital painting I did to get approved. Can’t wait to start on this one!


Also landed a really cool job doing some props for a high end party...will post some of these in the near future....
