some new stuff...

Just finished modeling and uving these two characters. Originaly I was just doing them to practice modeling in 3ds max but i think I'm gonna texture, rig, and animate it later, got the uvs done already so why not.

they're based on some concept art characters I did in class. Changed they're proportions abit and simplified them abit... But i think they ended up ok. Anyways heres the concept art and I'll update more later.

Mnyah short film

This is the shortfilm me and my groupmates did for our final project in The One Academy. Its got some explosions and liquids that look pretty cool and were done by me :D.

Demoreel 2008

This is my Demoreel, its pretty long but thats because I'm a generalist so theres a lot I have to show. I rig, model, animate, and do special effects so yeah... Its over four minutes but do check it out!

In the modeling section I didn't have enough time to show topology, It would make the reel too long. So check out the posts below for some topology.
I'm Interested in getting a job in singapore or in malaysia, preferably Singapore.
Here's my resume. It's a rapidshare download, just click free user and download. It's really small (2kb)

Even more Topology

Some more Topology to show that I know how to do good clean meshes because my demoreel was lacking that...
Anyways, first character was for a lipsnc assignment so only modeled till the torso. If you wanna see the animation you can check out my demoreel, he's in it. Everything done by me, except for the voice. Second guy was for a short animation for my brothers graduation campaign, pretty cool idea. Modeling, rigging, Animation, done by me. Idea and compositing done by my brother. He's also in my demoreel so check that out too. Third character is just some generic guy i did for an animation class. You can see him doing walkcycles and stuff in my demoreel.

"3d still" Topologies

These objects are from these 3d stills. Lighting, modeling, texturing, everything was done by me. More topologies to show that I can do clean meshes and good topology so... here they are

Topology of the "Mnyah" characters

For those of you who don't know what Mnyah is, its the name of the short film me and my groupmates did for our final project in The One Academy.
Anyways I designed, modeled and rigged them too so heres the topology of the characters. In my demoreel I forgot to show the wireframes so... here they are.
Characters from top to bottom: worker, small aimer, red general, carrier, fat aimer, engineer, blue general.

Guess I should introduce myself first. Hi my names louis cua, I come from the philipines, 19 year, old male and I'm an animator. Hobbies would be playing guitar, playing video games, sleeping?, basketball, modelkits, doing 3d. I recently graduated from The One Academy in malaysia so now I'm looking for some work in singapore or in malaysia.
