CONROY!

Hope You guys liked Episode 301!  I got to help work out a lot of kinks on our Friend Conroy here.  The original design was done by Maximus Pauson,  But They had me do the 3D model as well as figure out the transformation.   Color Credit goes to COREY BOOTH, who did a fantastic job of coloring this robot.  I love it so much

Did you guys see the Rick and Morty Mad Max Episode?  I got to work on a very special Rickmobile for this post apocalyptic episode.  This car design is based of a Volkswagon Karmann Ghia,  it’s a beautiful old 60′s car that we retro fitted with spikes and massive tires to fit the world.  The cars in the episode were getting too difficult to draw so I had to 3D model them in Maya so that i could do all the drawings needed for the shots.  I even spent time studying a real Karmann Ghia in the wild.  my neighbor owns one and so while i was working on it in the wee hours of the morning I would go down stairs to compare my models to the real thing.

So happy to have seen the crew again at the Rick and Morty season 3 premiere party! I hope you all enjoyed this crazy episode! Throwing down fun colors on these designs by adding spray paint definitely made this one of my top favorite episodes to have worked on in the season. The design team did an amazing job!

[War Hammer, Hand of Tobias]

Toby’s war hammer was one of the coolest things i got to work on.  it went through quite a few iterations,  and with a lot of help from Rustam Hasanov,  we finally ended up with what you see in the show.   as a fan of fantasy weapons I was really excited to work on this it brought me back to my days of obsessing over MMORPG weapons. 

you can see my process of concepting.  It initially started off as crystal on a pike,  and then after many rounds of notes.  eventually formed into a crystal surrounding a demon head statue. 

 Please watch Trollhunters on netflix if you havent checked it out yet.
