She’s finished. I’ve sent her through to render, and it will go onto my demo reel before too long (no, it will not be presented exactly like this on my reel—more likely over black or dark grey … ) I’d love to hear your thoughts. Everything is designed, modeled, and posed by yours truly.
Stay tuned, and I'll add my demo reel on to the end with the updates.

I thought I'd share the progress I've made on this little tyke. She's been a lot of fun to build. I haven't gotten a ton of time to put into her, and I've made a few other changes since I made this gif a few days ago, but I thought I'd share regardless. I'll get another image up once I've posed her and such. I'd strongly encourage and appreciate feedback. She's just for personal growth while I wait for my full-time position to start up at the end of the summer. Details when all is finalized.

The terrible thing is that the original file is corrupted, which is the equivalent to saying I had an exhibit sculpture nearing completion when an earthquake toppled my house in on top of it. I lost it all, but unlike a traditional sculpture, I saved a backup. Yup. I think I still have him. ;-) Had you scared for a minute, didn't I? hahaha! Here's an image of him. I'm super excited for what he's looking like so far.
May not be the best of poses, but I thought it was appropriate given the character. I'll have to do another sculpt later to show his toothless grin and the like--that is if I'm lucky enough to still have the base geometry. We'll see. :-)

Revisiting an old friend. His name is Cai. It was funny, so this afternoon I was cleaning out my computer and came across his obj file. I decided he looked ugly, so I took him into ZBrush and reshaped him to make him look more appealing. He’s coming along pretty well so far.
I'll post some more updates shortly.

My new reel is up! If you know anyone looking for a great modeler, please pass my name and demo reel along. I would greatly appreciate it.
I'm finishing up my freelance gig (the boy and girl characters toward the beginning of my reel) and that has been an awesome experience. I'll have to share the other characters on here when I have clearance to do so. I designed the main characters of the film and I just got to see one of them modeled and textured. Pretty neat!
Job hunt is going well enough. I just applied to a set modeling position with Pixar (I'd be ecstatic to get that position), an internship with Blue Sky (they're the ones that do the Ice Age films and Rio--I loved Rio!) as well as another environment modeling job with Lakeshore Learning. I feel like my work is getting more and more solid as time goes on, so hopefully I'm able to make myself more and more competitive while I'm still searching for work.
Like I said, I'd love it if you could pass me along if you know someone is looking for modelers. Thank you!
