Here is my reel finally, now that the software stopped crashing while trying to render the video. This a decent res version, I might post an even higher res one after this. Enjoy
The Monster Guy was done completely by yours truly from design to animation to render. The entire thing was done with Maya and maya's renderer.
The stairs I did the texture and lit it, but in the "in context" shot I did just the texture. It is all procedural except a baked out occlusion map to assign rust.
The baseball was all me, Just showing off a renderman shader.
The Rocket was maya Particles, all maya textures, rendered in Maya
The clouds are from playing with a maya fluids tutorial and trying to make them move, rendered in maya
The Ghost effect was exploration of Maya fluids beyond the tutorials, changing things up to get effects I wanted.
Yeah that is basically it.
