learning Maya 3D animation- first try

I've been trying to get in to 3D animation to expand my skillset an open more chances for work. It took me a while but i finally had a chance to actually animate a character. i found a clip from an old peter sellers movie and animated to it using a free character i found online. take a look.

i'm going to do some more soon to add to my portfolio. it won't be enough to get into Pixar... but maybe a local studio will take a chance on me.

eskimo ice-cream!

it's been a while since i've posted anything.... been busy doing stuff that can't be posted here. but!

i just finished some new plush toys for another gallery show.
it's called "Freezer Isle" at Phantom Gallery March 14th in L.A.

from what i understand they are going to fill empty store windows with art displays.. so i'm not exactly sure where it will be.. but you can check HERE for more info.

So i made these... ICE-KIMOS! basically ice-cream eskimos (i know it's not entirely politically correct, but Ice-Cream Inuits just don't have the same ring) 

they are in the colours of  Neapolitan ice-cream... which looks better than it tastes (i'm an ice-cream snob)
