Dagger Class Spaceship

 This is my final project for Intro to 3d Animation.  I am definitely more interested in modeling at the moment.  The whole 3d process is satisfying in that theres an incomprehensible amount of anticipation for the end product every step of the way.

I intended the dagger ship to be one part of a combinable set of spaceships for a top down schmup.  These fighter ships are small in scale and serve as a personal manned vehicle, and can also house a handful of passengers.

Gunbuster was definitely an inspiration for this project.  The idea was to create a dagger and sheath pair of spaceships, and the dagger design resulted in a similar silhouette as the space aliens from Gunbuster.  It is cool how the Gunbuster 1 and 2 combine to become a mecha, but I have not decided on what the combination of my two spaceships will become, yet.  Now that I think about it, a cool mecha would definitely change the pace.

I would watch Outlaw Star again for a bit of inspiration, but that's definitely going to end with grappling hooks.

Knights of the Unicorn... Table

Group project for Writing 340!  I edited the first 2 sections together, with Kajiura for BGM.

For the final version, we ended up having to speed up the first section a bit, because of complaints about pacing.

Two More Weeks

Two more weeks of classes.  We playtested the alien iPad game today.  The real work begins now.

I streamed two sketches today.  I tried Feng Zhu's multitask method.  It worked wonders.


Today a little fighting game called Skullgirls launched on the PSN, and soon the XBLA.  I interned at Reverge Labs for a bit last year, helping out on this game!  This my first time being credited on such a big project. ^_^

I played it for a bit an hour after the launch, and I have to say the characters are great personalities!  My favourites are Valentine and Ms. Fortune so far.  ninja girl and cat girl.  who'dve thunk'it?
The game's twice as large as Journey @_@.
