Mr. Tuttles is a character I came up with for my future kids book series. I will have more updates and characters for this project coming soon. Mr. Turtles was modeled in Zbrush and much of his props where modeled in Maya. Here is a sneak peek of his character.
The MORAV stands for Multi, Operational, Robotic, Attack, Vehicle. It’s idea and design came from Fon Davis, who has a whole comic book based on the world this thing comes from. I had a great time working on it and hope Fon gets the chance to use it in his T.V shows that are currently in production. Check out his website for more info on MORAV here. I did a model of an F-16 a while ago and thought it would be great for this guy to demolish it for the turntable (also helps for scale). I modeled everything for the most part in polygons using Maya and rendered in V-ray. I hope to get this guy into Mari soon for texturing.
I wanted to learn a texturing program called “Mari,” so I modeled a telescope and went to work. Overall I like the work flow of this software. Check out the turn table. I rendered using V-Ray.
This is a very simple script I wrote for Maya. It simply checks objects in the scene for N-gon geometry (polygons with more than 4 sides) or Triangles. Included is a Icon, readme.txt file (instructions for installing) and python file. Here is what the UI looks like. Enjoy!
Here’s a tool I wrote for Maya to create a color map of all the shells in the 0-1 space. This makes it easy in photoshop to tell wich shells belong to which objects as they have the same color. This tool should work with both Mac and Windows. Included is a movie to get a better idea of how to use this tool. Feel free to leave any feedback. Thanks.

Here is a little project done for some buddies of mine, Landis and Anna Fields! The theme was “Pregnant Alien”…She’s an alien fish. I concept modeled in Zbrush, retopoed in TopoGun, and did the final detailing and texturing in Mudbox. I then rendered using V-ray and touched up using Photoshop…..whew…..to many programs.
