Android Advertisements (Collage)













Series of 3D models and renderings I created for Android phone advertisements (very fast paced).  The renderings were later integrated with other graphics and text, however I've placed most of them into this collage.

Malibal Laptops
  I modeled a super-high-detail laptop for my friends at Element-X.  Unfortunately importing this stuff into Softimage isn't so easy, but I got through it.  Anyway, I took the model home and had some fun with it (and thought I'd give Mental Ray another shot):

Treasure Of The Black Jaguar

Film VFX work including bemish removal, several set-replacements, adding planes, volcanos, cities, blowing up and mutilating actors and turning a woman into a dust cloud.  Limited budget / time, but it helps when you love what you do.  For the most part, it was a lot of fun, and the gigantic Red Camera footage was really nice.
