Assets were modeled in Blender and textured with Substance Painter (Optimized for Eevee). The bare tree (Left) is a retopologized, UVed, and textured Photoscan. The rock group (Center) is a slightly re-modeled, UVed, and textured pack. (Vertices: 118,531)

Simple, adjustable Object Modifier-based Animations for the Foliage.

I created an Asset Pack using Blender 3.0's new "Asset Browser" to organize all the semi-modular props I made and used it to build the final environment. Materials all have 1K-4K quality variants. Procedural Anims/Mods come with each Asset. No LoD's.

A simple, procedural Waterfall Shader. The Mesh (as seen in video) was duplicated and adjusted.

I kept it simple, as it was going to be viewed from a distance in the final scene.

The Model for a mascot-like character I concepted and created for use in the "Kids Discover Online" Web Videos. Nicknamed, "Kid Discover/KD", this model has been used in most KD Online videos. The Rigging was done using Mixamo's Auto-Rig addon in Blender.

This fantastic, Real-Time ready Toucan was purchased from SketchFab as an additional character element for the final scene.

(Project Date: March, 2022) An animated scene I created for a video titled, "What is a Rain Forest" from the "Kids Discover Online" Educational Web Series.

All of the work seen here except for the animated Toucan (see breakdown) was concepted and developed solely by me within a 4 day production period.

I produce content for these KD Online video releases, weekly. This educational content includes work in a variety of Art/Animation mediums, as well as Graphic Design, Video Editing and Sound Design work.
