Avatar Korra Character Model by DaveBaldwin3D
Avatar Korra Character Model
"I’m the Avatar, you gotta deal with it."

Fully modeled and textured Korra from the “Legend of Korra” series on Nickelodeon. Using her Book Four design as you can see.

Not entirely satisfied with how the head and hair turned out but I’m very content with the body. May very well continue playing with the head.

Any way I am very happy that managed to find the time to finish this before the Book Four finale. May try a Kuvira next.

Made in Autodesk Maya, zBrush, and Photoshop.

Origami dump by DaveBaldwin3D
Origami dump
Been making a lot of origami sculptures in my down-time at my day job and beyond. These are some I've made over the course of October and November. They're fun to make when you don't have a lot of time to art about. Some of them are based on tutorials and designs by others* but they're mostly free-folds.

Legend of Korra Character Work in Progress by DaveBaldwin3D
Legend of Korra Character Work in Progress

Not a bad start on a model of the title character from “Legend Of Korra.”

Same old story, wanted to make a new character model but unable to get anything close to a design I was happy with so I picked an already existing character with an already established design.

Done in Autodesk Maya, Roughly two hours of work at this point

UPDATE: Managed to complete a head and hair piece that looked approximately on model. Placed it on top of the toon shaded body render I posted last night.  Gonna UV the whole thing and then take it into zBrush for final proportion adjustments and then texturing but you may not see that for another week or so. In any case she's not looking too bad If I wanted to I could probably call Korra done at this point but I think I wanna fully texture the lass.

Autodek maya, approximately 10-ish hours. I think.

St. John's IceCaps animated logo

Whipped up this Spinning logo model for the St. John’s IceCaps of the AHL. 
Not the sportiest individual but modeling logos and/or emblems can be fun.

The spin’s a bit fast but I had to cut out half the frames to make a decent gif that would show on the dash.

Yay, Hockey!

Explosion Test Animation.
Have been spending the last few days practicing some VFX simulation. Here's an explosion I rendered off yesterday. It's not perfect and I had to have the settings low for the sake of my laptop but I think it works well as a first effort.

Rendered in Autodesk maya.
