Aristocrat Sculpt

Hey! It's been a while since I've posted on this (mostly because all the things I've been working on have been work related and I didnt really have anything personal to show). I finally got a bit of time to sculpt this weekend and so I did this guy. I've had him in my head for a while, so it was super rewarding to finally get him out. I'm thinking of casting him and having little statuettes.

The Last Of Us Gameplay

Gameplay footage of the game I've been working on for the last 2 1/2 years (The Last of Us) has finally been released. I was responsible for rigging (body & face) the 2 main characters (Joel and Ellie). I'm super excited to be a part of this team and this gameplay sequence could not have come out better! Congrats to everyone at Naughty Dog!

Blank Update

Hey, so I don't actually have anything to post in terms of work... I just thought I'd check in and post a quick update. I've just been so busy with jobs (stuff I can't show) and I've had absolutely no time to do any personal stuff. Hopefully that will change soon and I can post some stuff. I need my soul back! :D
