Environment concept design, character concept design, 3D modelling.
Using Autodesk Maya, these examples involve 3D modelling, texturing, lighting and rendering. Other programs used for the example and show reel include Adobe Photoshop, After Effects, Premiere Pro, and Media Encoder. The show reel includes a ‘Polygon Pet’ made using basic Maya tools, a 3D model of an IKEA dinner set from reference material, a medieval style door made using the Modeling Toolkit, and an original ‘Floating Village’ environment design.
I chose to make an environment that could be used in a game. The dislocated rooms of the building provide an array of platforms that players can easily traverse across. Fitting as a level on a small downloadable title, the environment may afford puzzle mechanics, for example, a maze to get to the top.
