San Francisco and ArenaNet Art Test

Last week something came up totally out of the blue at YETi and I ended up having the opportunity to head out to San Francisco for a week.  I was part of a three man team that was meeting with a client to get briefed on their art style and pipeline.  Unfortunately I can't say much more due to NDA, but we worked a lot of late nights and had a really great time.  Hopefully in a few months I'll be able to post pics of what I'm working on! However, I can post pictures of the entry I did for the ArenaNet internship art test. Unfortunately I ran out of time to submit, but I did go ahead and finish it. The concept was provided by ArenaNet, but we were encouraged to give it our own style.

Tire Bake Exercise

I did this high to low poly tire bake exercise over the last week.  Once I started I realized I'd never done high poly hard surface modeling like this before, so I ended up learning a lot more than I expected.  It isn't exactly game ready, (being 800 tris) but it was a great exercise to go through.
