This weekend was the first real opportunity I have had to start working on a rig I am planning to make for a character modeled by Nicolas Collings. The character’s name is Trarch and is an awesome piece of work, I can’t wait to start making some progress on this project.
Anyways, if you’ve checked out Nicolas’s website you will have seen Trarch in his side banners, 3d works section, and making of section and noticed that he is a very muscular character. Being the quick one that I am, I realized this would be a good chance to play around with some muscles.Read More
This tutorial will show you how to get Z-Depth and fog in compositing out of the same render pass. It will also show you how to tweak your fog without having to go back and re-render from your 3d package. The tutorial is aimed at beginner to intermediate level compositors. The technique for getting Z-Depth and fog from the same render pass is not recommended for all situations but is definitely helpful if you have limited resources and cannot afford to render passes for both.
I will be using 3ds Max 2008 and After Effects CS3 for this tutorial although the techniques can be applied to any software packages.Read More
Many character rigs require both stretchy limbs and twist bones in the same appendage. It can be tricky to get these two things working in unicen, and there are many different methods. I am going to show you the technique I have been using as of late. I prefer this method because it is very straight forward, easy to set up and easy to maintain.
This tutorial is being done in 3ds Max 2008 and uses some beginner level MAXScript. Click here to download the starting max file.Read More

These are some of my life drawings from school. I really enjoyed this class at Humber and was actually kinda upset we didn’t have it in our post-grad year. Hopefully I will have more opportunities to do it in the future.
This is my demo reel from my final year at Humber College. It showcases a lot of what I did on “Down On The Farm”, both technically and artistically.Read More
