Here's the latest version of my demo reel. It begins with my short animation titled "Wrecked", then continues with a look at some of my past work. I find that I'm more interested in the story side of animation, not so much with the details. I like that this medium can be used to easily create any scenario you can think of without breaking the bank in production. I had a lot of fun making all of these pieces and I plan on expanding my repertoire while exploring new ideas and techniques. So, without further ado, the main attraction!

Anyone who has had the fortune of constructing a maquette based on their own designs knows how fun it is to create a physical representation of your own character. You start to figure out all the little things that you never thought of while it was in 2 dimensions. I had a heck of a time figuring out this fella's chin. Victor Big here took several days to build, but it was worth the effort. I still have him sitting on my dresser next to Vermek, another character I'll post in the near future.

This is a 3D character design for a villain I call Lieutenant Kilgern. I imagine him as an evil astronaut saboteur who got blown in half by his own handy work, but managed to land in a cryogenic chamber and drift through space for decades. He's recovered by some futuristic baddies, who slap on a new pair of legs and let him loose.
...or something like that, I'll have to think that through someday. Anyways, enjoy!

I've changed the direction I'm going with my identity and logo. I gave the cards a stark image of myself with my logo on my chest. I like the visual impact it has, but it also adds a goofy contrast to the type of guy I really am.
