First Portfolio Iteration

So, for portfolio class the other day, we were told to bring in some samples of professional quality work. Basically work we've done over the years at Digipen that show what we can do. I looked through all the assignments I've done over the last 4 years and picked a number of them. Here's a few of them. :)

These two are from a painting class from last year. I learned a lot from this class, and it really helped me start to hone my skills in digital painting. I'm pretty happy with how I'm progressing.

These two are renders from a couple of projects I did last year. Environment modeling isn't my forte, but it is enjoyable. It's something I plan and hope to keep working on. I learned a thing or two about lighting too, and I've finally gotten the hang of material shaders, I think.

These last two are sort of an old-new thing. I took a character design I did for my sophomore team animation 2.5 years ago and gave him a new, updated look. I have gotten a lot better in just 2.5 years. :) I'm pretty happy with my update for him. Character design is my favorite thing to do, I think. I think I'll be redesigning a few of the other characters I designed for that animation and throw them into my portfolio when I have time. Anyway, the new one shown above is just a WIP and is at the lineart stage, so I'll make a new post and show off the finished version when it's done.

P.S.: Dunno what it is, but the quality of the images being uploaded has been reduced and there's a tiiiiny bit of artifacting, but it's not THAT bad I guess. Could be worse. . I don't know if there's a way to get around that, but ah well.
