Combat Tactics School Crest - 3D Printer Work



A recently completed project from work.  This was modeled in 3DS max, textured in Photoshop, and printed on a 3D Systems Projet printer.  It's dimensions are 6 inches tall and 1/2 inch thick.

I was really proud of the gems on the crown.  They came out a lot smaller than I expected, so I saved a little piece of the texture sheet for my portfolio.

Team Falcon Punch - Extra Life Charity

Some co-workers and I did a gaming marathon for charity, and I did a bit of design work so we could spread the word.  We raised a total of $1,126.  Our team page is right here: http://www.extra-life.org/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.team&teamID=14568

Global Game Jam - "Inhabitant"


I participated in this year's Global Game Jam as an artist.  My group produced this game, Inhabitant, which is a space flight simulator about a ship-hopping parasite.  Depending on the host ship, you'll have different objectives.

This game was made in 48 hours by a team of five.  Team Page  Play the Game
