Undisclosed Project

  • Developed character styles and modeled and textured all characters using a streamlined workflow with Zbrush and 3Dcoat.
  • Created rigs and animation systems for both bipedal and many-legged models.
  • Animated all characters, creating loops that blended seamlessly for a 360-degree system with analog movement speeds. Some small cinematic animations as well.
  • Used material tinting and a modular approach to create a variety of NPC’s.
  • Modeled props and weapons, using masked skeletal blending for specific stances.

343 IndustriesLighting ArtistOct.2011|Sep.2012
Halo 4

  • Worked with level leads to light very real and cinematic-feeling environments, pushing lighting in ways that haven’t been seen in previous Halo games. Worked on several of the more technically-challenging cinematics and vignettes, using tricks and workarounds to make them match the quality bar set by static scenes.
  • Headed up the design and documentation/implementation of the cubemap tool that artists can use to create and have change with each BSP.
  • Took on many other final look duties, including fog, color grading, lens flares, light cones, light probes, and camera effects (bloom, tone curve, exposure).

Halo: Reach
Halo 3: ODST

  • Created several environment sets and textures, along with some objects and vehicle work.
  • Lit the large majority of interior environments on Reach, creating fixtures, shaders, and effects as well. This included developing prefabs and sets to propagate large areas quickly.
  • Experimented and learned to use the psychology of lighting in real-time environments; creating mood, and aiding navigation.

  • Modeled/Textured units and structures, using a combination of high-res geometry and hand-drawn bumpmaps to create normal maps, along with spec/reflect maps as well
  • Created walk and idle cycles, deaths, and many unit-specific animations. Also developed a detailed facial rig and head to prototype its use for in-game briefings.
  • Re-textured over 25 monsters for variation and created many armor pieces.
