3D Animation Reel

During the Fall 2009 semester, I took a 3D animation course that let me dabble in modeling, texturing, animating, and lighting 3D objects. I've put together a quick reel of some of the more interesting stuff I worked on.

The two big subjects the course introduced me to were animation and lighting. I really enjoyed animating in Maya; it breathed some much-needed life into my (otherwise static) creations. The lighting process is sort of a mixed bag. My 3D objects looked absolutely stunning when lit correctly, but the actual process of lighting an object well took a lot of practice and patience.

Overall, I learned some powerful techniques in this animation course that will serve me well in future 3D game projects.
