I was challenged to create an integral character asset for my team's collaborative film project, a stylised blue Monarch Butterfly. 

I was responsible for all but the groom and rig.

I was also responsible for the film's main environment, and contributed to the animation for some shots. Further details can be seen in the following video's annotations.


I was given the opportunity to contribute to another short film this year, providing asset assembly, texture and lookdev work for this interplanetary gate. Figuring out the space-defying portal interior was very satisfying!


As a collaboration with three friends, I revamped a previous piece of work inspired by a childhood game in order to bring it to life in a real setting.

I was responsible for all CG aspects except for the lighting and compositing. I tried to explore some areas I hadn't tackled before, such as simulated flesh on the injured leg, interaction with leaves on the ground, and an iris rig which dilates and contracts with the rotation of an HDRI.
