Walking with Dinosaurs @ Animal Logic as Lead Matte Painter / Environment Artist

Here are some of the shots I worked on for Walking with Dinosaurs while at Animal Logic. I was the Lead Matte Painter for the show and filled in for Visual Development / Concept Designer as well.

The post colour corrections were punched up really high in some of them. They wanted to make it more colourful I guess.

Tools used: Photoshop, Maya (Renderman), Zbrush, Nuke, Vue

Skills used: Matte Painting, Concept Design & Art Direction, 3D Environment (modelling, Zbrush sculpting, texturing, lighting), Camera Projections in Maya & Nuke.

Latest! McDonald's commercial feat. the Dreamworks characters Mr.Peabody and Sherman!

Here's the newly released commercial I had the pleasure to work on featuring the characters from Dreamwork's Mr. Peabody and Sherman!

I created all the backgrounds for different time periods of which they traveled using the Wayback time machine. From the French Revolution to Greece to King Arthurs round table. 

I teamed with Director and Flame artist John Budion at LairTV in NYC for Leo Burnett for clients: Dreamworks & McDonalds.

Check out the result below as well as the "Making of" video.
