Character: Evil Fish - This project is a 3D character design that includes modeling, Texturing and shading together. For this I tried to pay more attention on texture and shading design. I create the texture material in Photoshop and add some special effect in Maya. I finish the whole project by myself that include character design, texture composition, scene design as well as shading and lighting design. The project takes me about 30 hours to finish.

Animation: Robot assembly - This project is a 3D animation that about combines a set of simple base shapes together to build a humanoid robotic character. The project was set and produced by Maya and though Batch render to export all the frames of animation, then composed by Final Cup Pro as a high quality video file. I finish the whole project by myself (design, modeling, texturing, animation, scene setting, rendering, video/audio combination etc.), and It takes me about 50 hours to finish the whole thing.
