All the stuff is now in unreal and I got some temp lighting that I still need to tweak as soon as I get my hero prop.:D.Not bad for a week
's worth of work...:P Now I got three weeks to finish my main prop and polish all this stuff to get it ready in time for GDC ;)! Tadau!

WIP - Bravado

--ArodZ--

A guerrilla group is trying to survive the invasion of an enemy nation and they have established their base in the sewers of the city, in an effort to fight back and recover their homeland. This is the premise behind my next project. During the next 4 months I will be working on this assignment. So far I only have some WIP of some props and some concepts. I will keep updating this post as I get new stuff done or as I start working on more things.

Prototyping

--ArodZ--

This is the Cogshire, a quiet gnome town, that's being contaminated by evil flowing in through a portal to the nightmare realm.

The Cogshire is a school project I led with my team (Team Excelsior), and we worked under the supervision of SOE (Sony Online Entertainment). This was the result of 9 weeks of hard work.

We are currently working on the second part of The Cogshire.

Andres Rodriguez - lead 3D artist / lead designer / lead technical artist
Jimmy Barnnett - co-lead / QA (Quality Assurance) /modeller
Anthony Vaccaro - lead texture artist
Gene Pabalan - lead concept artist
Jeff Berry - modeller / concept artist
Lee Meza - modeller / technical artist
Randin Lambrecht - modeller

Modeling and Architecture

--ArodZ--

During this project we were supposed to create a room, that followed the arts and crafts architectural trend, inside of that environment we needed to create a prop that made it a bit more extraordinary. In this case i created a tank in which someone is trying to grow a human, following the research of old deceased uncle. Hope you guys like it.

Character Animation Final

--ArodZ--

This is my final for character animation. It's a simple animation based on short audio clip. The rig (the character) is from highend3d.com, and the audio clip is from the first pirates of the Caribbean. I hope you guys enjoy this animation, I certainly enjoyed making it. Enjoy!

Concept Art final

--ArodZ--

So I finally had the time to compile the work I did for this class, and even though you can tell 2-d isn't my strongest skill, I was pretty content with the result looking at it as a reference for 3-d modeling. All the characters were based of "The King's Son who Feared Nothing" a fairytale by the brothers Grimm. I hope you guys like it. Enjoy!

Adv. Level Design

--ArodZ--

This is a kinda quick video of myself demoing my level. It's just a quick video but the essence of the level is there. I highly recommend playing it though. I will present this tomorrow in class, and hope to get good critiques. In case you can't or won't play it I hope you enjoy the video in the mean while.
