This page is intended to be an archive of old work, projects or items moved from the front page. Partly because I like having an easily accessible record and partly because I'm loath to scrap website work. For that reason it is not linked from a prominent place on my main site, though viewers can easily get to the front end from here.

Graduate Thesis Project

The art of preproduction: From concept to computer

My culminating project for Master of Arts in Interdisciplinary Studies: Applied Computer Graphics at CSU, Chico. The project was a study of techniques commonly used in the creation of textures for video games, then testing those techniques in order to find which produced the highest quality images to then be used in a real time digital environment. The result was the creation of a digital environment in The Elder Scrolls: Oblivion with 60+ custom models and over 200+ custom textures, a 60 page paper and four tutorials.

Aero Empire

Aero Empire Studios

Aero Empire was an indie project I work on as a texture artist, making diffuse, specular, transparency & normal maps for objects in the game. The project's style was steampunk-ish, but with less metal and more wood. One of our concept artists called it "Da Vinci Steampunk" but with an Eastern feel.
