Paris: 2042 AD (2010-present)

A scene I’ve been working on recently. I’ve built the entire Latin Quarter of Paris around the Arc de Triomphe.

Spider tanks. Fully rigged, with set driven keys for the legs and pistons, hooked up to the transform. It walks just by moving it in Z.

A building. I made it in 10 minutes, as a class demo. Also a prop truck
It's... a building. It's... a truck.

Country Village (2010)

The entire scene was modeled and textured in 3 hours. I made it in class as a demo for my students, to show them what they should have been doing for the previous two weeks.
