Completed all of the models for this piece! Currently, Samia and I are working on getting all the assets in Lens Studio, and figuring out how the thing works. So far, we've figured out how to get the models and textures in there, and how to use templates (glasses, overlay, etc).
Hello! It's been a long time~
I had another long period of being busy at work, but I'm jumping right back into doing personal projects!
I wanted to share some of the latest projects I have coming up/in progress:
1.) Wedding AR Overlay - Flowers
This is a project I recently started with my friend Samia! I've never created anything for AR, so this is a great experiment to learn the process, and hopefully work more with this cool medium. Samia is art directing, and I'm creating the models/working in Lens Studio. We're going for flat lit, simply textured flowers, and some lovely accents to frame the picture as a geolocation overlay for this wedding. This should be a very fast project, but I'll be sure to share updates as we're figuring things out in Lens Studio. Stay tuned!
2.) Finally! A New Environment Piece!
It has been a long, LONG time since I've made a personal environment piece, and have been itching to make one!
I was recently inspired by a very cool concept by yewon Im, and reached out to her/him for permission to make this piece. After a quick approval, I've already started to model this out! I'll be sharing lots of updates, and hopefully will be streaming this very soon! (Woot! Back to streaming :D)
3.) Kai'Sa Revisit
Yep, that's right. I jumped the gun and was too fixated on finishing, when I previously called Kai'Sa done. When I took another look at her with fresh eyes, I absolutely couldn't call her "done."
I've removed those gaudy materials, and will first focus on tightening up her sculpt.
Once that's done, I'm actually going to retopo, UV, and texture her. I know this is very peculiar given that she is already in her final pose, but I'd really like to see her in game res, and attempt PBR since she has some lovely metal accents.
Once last thing... STREAMING!
Once I get my new place situated for streaming (lighting, settings, etc), I will be right back on it. There is no starting date, but please keep an eye out for my next stream post on Twitter and/or Facebook. Can't wait to get back into it.

This is a blog that I mainly use to record the work I do for AAU, but I'm sure I will be uploading some personal stuff, as well.
