Animation

Current Showreel

This reel represents the level of the work I have been involved in recently. These animations are designed for use in-game, so are loopable and generic by nature. I have rendered them without textures so that they fit better together and the focus is on the animation. The creatures were animated with my own rigs which gives the right amount of control for each situation. None of the models were built by me apart from the griffon and dragon ogre.

Dragon Ogre

This is a current project I have wanted to do for a long while. Now that I have the time, my goal is to build, rig and animate this dragon ogre and create a nice FMV sequence something along the lines of what the Blizzard guys do. The dragon ogre was chosen as it has inspired me ever since I bought a miniature from Games Workshop in the early 90s. Here, I have the rough model made and I used that as the basis for the bone structure which I have rigged and animated in 3ds Max

Warhammer Online Animations

The Warhammer website has shown a few of the animations I created while I worked there. The game is still in production, so I can only link what has been publicly released by the Warhammer team. The links below take you to Quicktime versions of the animations, the original AVI's can be found on the Warhammer site.

Machines

These are some of the in-game animations completed for Machines, a 3D real time strategy game for the PC. For more examples of them running about in-game, see the intro movie below.

Machines FMV

These clips are the rendered movies I created to set the scene between missions. A lot of the time, I used in-game models and backgrounds and then used my existing animations and added lighting and motion blur etc. Others, such as the pod-landing required hi-res versions to be made.
