Sci Fi Crate

Started this... just for fun.

Did the whole blockout and model in Max, and then took it to Zbrush to add dents and wear to it. Now just to finalize a low poly and some textures. Should be fun.

Let me know what you think.

Flat Rock with Textures

Finally got around to the low poly and textures of this guy. Using a 1024 and the triangle count is around 800. Also... didn't use any photo reference on the actual texture, just color picking some colors and everything else is hand painted and color picked from the bakes.

Making a low poly through topogun really payed off, allowing for a better shape that is consistent with the Sculpt.

Let me know if you guys have any thoughts or feedback.

Thanks!

Pet Zombies - 3DS

This one is an older one. First project made on the 3DS, so you'll see some of the age, but i still think it came out looking pretty good for the time being. Now we can do a whole lot better, but at least you get to see some of the work done there.



The Zombies
A series of zombies that went through a lot of revisions and through different art styles. Abdul Brown got the sculpts and low polys of the models, i worked on the texture work for this and material setups. Also all of the environments and props, including lighting and concept work.


Nurture VS Torture
We had this thing where you could nurture or torture your zombie... the more your tortured him the dirtier, flies hover around him and the lights and mood would change dynamically. I intended to get a video, but it was too long. Maybe i'll capture one and speed it up. But this are the two opposites screen grabs, and you can see the environment at its regular stage next.



Environment Work
These had a lot of revisions as well. At first we had an oval shaped room, then it was a rectangle. The trick here was to make them look like dioramas. I think some them don't look as fake, but they have a nice mood about them, and the amount of detail we added, even tho everything was low res was a lot.
There were a few more environments i concepted out, but i didn't do the 3d work for those. 


The main menu and the shop.
We had tons of small props. Maybe i'll just compile a big img with all of the ones in the game. But we also had furniture and decorations you could set around your environment. 





Frozen: Olaf's Quest 3DS and DS

Game just came out yesterday, so i'll just add some official screen grabs for now to show some of the work done. Soon enough i'll update the post with breakdowns and work done in this title.

As usual, I was in charge of environment work and lighting and texture painting for both envs and characters. Tho the characters didn't really need much attention. Just setting up materials so they show up properly.

This project was pretty crazy, as we had to put together art for 60 levels across 4 themes, the characters and customization for Olaf in like a month. Some nice painted textures in there and variation even tho we had very very limited time. Let me know what you guys think.

More to come soon.


Summer and Winter Props

Samples
Most of these are just screen grabs of a few levels in Max without any lighting, particles, or animations. So they feel really static. We did a lot with the few props and lighting, as well as the design format to make each of the levels look different. You get a sense of it being familiar since its always in the same style. But i feel there was variety in how it was executed.





Real Time
You can see some of the levels in real time, with animations, and some effects to add some atmosphere. As well as lighting. Working with white, on characters that are white is not very pleasant. But i think the end result came out quite nice.
