Ian Green

United Kingdom,  Milton Keynes Train 2 Game,  Artist and Animator,  July 01, 2017
Hi, my name is Ian Green and I'm coming up to my first year on the Artist and Animator course with Train 2 Game here in the UK. Becoming a 3D artist and animator has been both challenging and alot of fun and I still have a long journey ahead of me. I'm looking forward to where I'll be and what I can accomplish over the next few years.
My aim after I graduate is to become an animator and while I don't have an animation to show you yet hopefully by next year I will have one to submit. Instead I have here my latest modeling project. This was a fun project for me and I couldn't be happier with the results. I hope you enjoy.

The aim of this project was to create a realistic looking western saloon, to see how much I've learnt over the last year and how much my skills and experience have grown.
After gathering my reference material I created a floor plan and concept images in Photoshop. All modeling, cameras and lighting were created in 3ds Max and rendered using the Mental Ray renderer. All textures were created by me using mainly Photoshop . Some of the textures were created using 3ds Max materials.
The overall project took approximately 80 hours to complete.
