My senior capstone project is a collection of high-quality models and concepts. The Ray Gun model is an HD recreation of the original Ray Gun from the video game “Call of Duty’s” very popular “Zombies” mode and the Portal Gun is a realistic take on Rick’s Portal Gun from the animated series “Rick and Morty”. Everything else presented here are other senior works I made throughout my Junior and senior years at Umass Dartmouth. The process of creating these models starts in Maya, then textured in Substance Painter and then back to Maya for final rendering. I created these models to showcase my abilities in creating high quality models from the ground up. Though these models are finished, I still have a few more that are set to be completed by the end of my senior year. The full collection will be posted on my Art-Station and Instagram.
