I created this blog to show my progess throughout my modeling/texturing reel, share techniques that I've been learning since I started learning CG and also publish news about upcoming projects.
I've been studying at Think Tank (a CG school located in North Vancouver, BC) since May, and after 9 intense months it is finally time to prepare myself to work in the film industry.I took me a while to decide my specialty. When I first came to Think Tank, I was always excited about everything CG related, but after a few months I finally decided to focus on modeling/texturing for films.
So, after deciding what I was going to focus on, I had to choose my mentor to guide me through 4 months during the final semester. I chose Justin Holt, a well known Texture Painter in the industry who currently works as a texturing supervisor at Sony Imageworks. He is an amazing artist and professional, and I'm sure that I made the right choice.
After contacting Justin, he helped me plan my reel and we chose assets which have a variety of textures and surfaces.
Below I'll show each asset that will be featured my reel.
Asset 01 - Southern Cassowary
