Now that you're all caught up: as of a couple weeks ago I have started a sabbatical for personal development! It's slated to last to the end of 2014. I will be doing digital painting and digital sculpting studies on a daily basis (at least six days per week), as well as various other studies in order to catch up on much of the current and next-gen content which unfortunately was not entirely taught during my time in college.
Some topics of study include IBL, PBR, dDo, nDo, advanced game engine application, hand-painted textures, hard-surface ZBrush modelling, and style mimicry, all building toward a vastly improved portfolio.
I will be posting shots of all my work here and on Polycount, both completed and WIP.
Please feel free to follow or comment! I would welcome any critiques, suggestions, advice or otherwise during my trek through the next year.
