United States,  Los Angeles Gnomon School Of Visual Effects,  Digital Production for Entertainment,  January 14, 2015
After attending two years at Gnomon School of Visual Effects I was able to compile the works seen in this submission. The software and techniques learned were all thanks to the amazing staff and my peers as well. The project focuses on modeling, texturing, lighting, and compositing. I am responsible for all aspects of the reel excluding concept art which is credited in the bottom left hand corner of each piece. Big thanks to all the concept artists who allowed me to use their work to further my knowledge of CG.
