Thumbnail drawings of space ships

I got one of those brown paper sketchbooks in San Francisco. I am really happy with how white jelly pen looks it it. these are some quick thumbnails I worked on between classes last week.

The infamous lantern assignment

I really was hoping that this year we would get something other than a lantern to texture. I think folks are probably getting tired of seeing the same lantern in every DigiPen students portfolio. At any rate it is great practice. I used to hate lighting in 3D, it used to seem like such a frustrating chore. However, having taken a little bit more time to understand the tool I am finding it to be one of the most fun parts of building the scene.

3D paint overs

3D paint overs are a big part of our workflow on the game. It helps the Tech team understand how we would like to see the art assets arranged in the scene. It determines exactly which props we need to make if we do not already have them. Finally they give us a goal for the final lighting.
