David Eisenstadt's Rookies Submission
David Eisenstadt is proficient in parts of the pipeline, currently pursuing an education in 3D. He is a student at Gnomon School of VFX and Animation, working diligently toward his goal of working for Pixar, Disney, and Disney Imagineering, as well as any exciting opportunities that come along the way.
Created in my Texture 2 class at Gnomon School of VFX and Animation, Curiosity House is a place of my own invention, or perhaps some place I visited in a dream. Within, you can find Siamese penny farthings, upside down bookstacks, and doors that lead to everywhere or nowhere. Over the course of 12 weeks, I modeled everything in Maya, textured it all using Substance Painter, rendered with VRay, and composited using NukeX. A huge thank you to Tran Ma and Miguel Ortega, my exceptional mentors!

The Classic White Tiffany Coupe
In my Hard Surface Modeling 2 class at Gnomon, taught by Jay Machado, I had the opportunity to model any vehicle I so desired. Over the course of 7 weeks, I gathered all of my reference, modeled everything in Maya under the invaluable tutelage of Jay and one of my tutors at Gnomon, Tran Ma, textured it procedurally in Maya, and composited it in Nuke with some fantastic guidance by Miguel Ortega. Thanks to their instruction, I was able to create a piece that garnered a Gnomon Best of Term for Hard Surface Modeling!
