I am Andrew Turci a Senior at RIT in the 3D Digital Design program. After I graduate this Spring I hope to make my way into the film industry but am interested in all aspects of 3D/digital work. This project was done over the course of 7-8 months, I did not fully succeed in the storytelling aspect that I originally intended but visually it did come together as I had planned. My main inspiration for the style was the Star Wars animated series such as The Clone Wars and Rebels which is why I went for the hand-painted stylized textures that I painted in Photoshop which was a main goal of mine. I enjoy how the textures came out plus I gained a character who I enjoyed creating and definitely plan on working with in the future.

The project was modeled, animated, lit, and rendered in Maya, the textures were hand-painted in Photoshop, and UVed in Maya/3D Coat. The sound editing done by Aaron Solomon with my input and minor assistance was done in Adobe Audition and Premiere.
