Polybook - Jody

Hi there Everyone.
This is my New Polybook with the New CGC And i thought it would be an awesome Idea to kick it off with all the Projects I have done so far (Unfinished and Completed Projects) all in order.

Check out my Artstation Account if you would like to check out some more work.

Stay tuned till the end, it gets better I promise XD
So with out Further a dew, here goes nothing :)

First Model I have on File.
It was an attempt at making a Building (Tutorial on youtube)

This was My Second model.
It was a tutorial From Andrew Price on youtube.

My Third Ever Model.
I think it was'nt to bad and I had a lot of fun doing this.
Tutorial is also on youtube.

My Fourth Image is just me learning about Lighting.

This was a Project Done using Andrew Prices Tutorial on maps.
It was my  first time using Normal, Disp and so on maps.
I had a lot of fun.

This was ANOTHER Tutorial from Andrew Price and my first time learning about Physics.

This is once the ball hits.

This was me trying to take what I learnt from the Ball of light and the Floor and apply it here, Not the best but learnt a bit :)

The continuation of the Image above, it was Supposed to be a water founten but wasn't.

Here was me trying to Figure out the Fire Simulation, Clearly I have no idea what I'm doing XD

Here was doing one of the Exercises for the CGC modeling course.

This is the Cousre by Jonathan Williamson for the apocalyptic Jeep course.
Its a really great course.

This guy was my entry into the Halloween course in 2015 I think and my First character :)
I used the Intro to Character creating course here on CGC to create this guy. Its a great course and highly recommend it.

This was a Personal Project I was doing for my Late Father.
I will finish this one day for sure :)

This is Obviously my Creation of the Sci Fi Helmet course from Kent Trammell.
Such an awesome course and its where my Turning point came as an artist.

Some Wire Frame shots

This was My attempt at doing an outside scene of a House.
I learnt a lot about Procedural materials and some physics and fluids.

P.S - That tree is Terrible LOL!.

So I decided to try my hand at Sculptris and cam out with this base shape.
I then took it into Blender for Retopo and into mudbox for fine details.

I tried to Create a Sci Fi Coridor suing the Modeling course for the Tower Defence game course here on CGC.

Just some Modeling tutorials to Further learn Maya.
Courses are on Pluralsight.

This is a Gun Case

Some solar panels.

A Stage.

And a Stun Gun

Here is the Forest Creature I was working on. 
I spent a lot of time on him and Decided he Needed a full Redesign so I changed to another Project for now.

This is what I was going for with the Vine look.

This was a Project I never got to finish, the Slavic Here.
It was a Project for the Artstation fantasy game character.

Some Shots of the hands.

And last but Not Lest, my Latest project.
I have now moved onto another for now.
Check out my Profile for more images.

As you can see, I have an Issue with not Finishing Projects lol.
But thats now changed with this Demon character. I was still trying to Figure out my way and now I know what I want to do so I am now Focused.

Hope you like this Progress of mine. Its been a long road but a good learning road.
There where a few others like a Dragon I never finished and a little Alien dude and a few other simulations and other models, but I couldnt find the Files.

    Wow, Thanks Large theluthier 
    It was my first attempt at sculpting Cloth and I learnt a LOT ! to say the least.
    In the end I decided to Abandon the Project Due to some Design Flaws in the Anatomy.

    When I did this character I just posed a ZShere Maniquin and placed Clothing on top and went from there.
    Ill Start here again properly next time and She will be Great :)
