character design & animation

well, i know it has been a while since i posted anything new, but for the past few quarters i have been taking evening classes in 3d character design and animation using maya. that makes two new topics for me, coming from a 3d motion graphics background and having used 3ds max almost exclusively for over 6 years. anywho...  here are some quick screen grabs (+ minor compositing) of my 3 characters i have made for this final quarter, which i will be using in our main project... due in 5 weeks. this is going to be a long weekend of rigging.

pacific martial arts of lynnwood - web design

Lately I have been working on designing a new website for a Taekwondo school in Lynnwood, WA. Here is a dump of some elements and rough splash page layouts. Ideally, the viewer would be able to select which "belt theme" they want displayed, thereby changing the background of the site to match their preference.

interim portfolio

The other day it came to my attention that my host server for my website,, could no longer be found. To make matters worse, I seem to be unable to track down the administrator of said server, so I am not sure if it will ever come back online. So... for the time being, I have made a few adjustments to my blog so that it can act as an interim portfolio until I can get a better server for I will add a couple more pages to the blog shortly so I can have a more complete portfolio gallery. Thanks for the patience.
