S.W.A.T.



Here is your average swat guy I made for a final last quarter in my background design and layout class. Pretty basic story concept which is, a UFO crashes in a city park much like NY's Central Park leading to police personnel being dispatched on scene. My partner and I created the entire scene needed to show this scenario, animated the cameras and rendered the beast! It just so happened I got paired up with the only other student in the class who knew Max better than Maya. His preference is environments and mine characters. Lucky huh? The final cinematic turned out pretty cool, I'll try to get it uploaded here.

Ben, that is some extremely well done sculpting. Great job on EVERYTHING! It really looks awesome! I really like the detail on the vest and pant pockets. When are you uploading the video!? I use Vimeo to upload my animations.

Thanks Isai! Happy to hear from you man! Somethings wrong with my media settings on my computer. I tried to view your videos last week and nothing ever comes up..?! Trying to fix it but anyways, glad to see you're learning Maya man, takes a little time but eventually it starts clicking and thats impressive how much you've attained so far. Good luck wit it and thanks for the comments bro!

Thanks man, I appreciate the comments. You wouldn't believe how many different types of swat guys there are. From all the reference I found, this one has a little bit from each.
