Assignment 01

  • Kevin Damore
  • To further expand and master my knowledge as a digital artist.
  • Skilled in:
    • Autodesk Maya
    • Zbrush
    • Adobe Photoshop
    • Adobe Illustrator
    • Adobe Dreamweave
    • Adobe Flash
    • Adobe After Effects
  • I am pretty good at drawing, but I don't do it that often.
  • I have a good ear for music: I am a guitar player, drummer, and can pick up instruments fairly easily.
  • I have been known to be a good writer.
  • I have completed:
    • Beginning and Advanced Photoshop courses
    • Adobe Illustrator course
    • Four 3d modeling/animation/lighting/materials courses
    • A film shooting and editing using Avid course
    • After Effects editing course
    • Dreamweaver web course
    • Zbrush sculpting course
  • I only did one thing so far as far as work experience, and not in my focus in school. I did a website for my dad's business.
  • I want to emphasize 3d modeling, animation, and composting for my portfolio.
  • I am strong at figuring things out in a very cramped time frame. I won two competitions (state and national) with 8 hour time frames. Each time, we found out what we had to do for the competition right when the 8 hrs began. Concept, modeling, animation, and compositing had to be done in 8 hrs.
  • I would say my weakness is that I worry too much about not having enough time to complete projects. However, once I get going, I forget about the worrying. 
Here is a video of some of the pieces I worked on at the community college:

Here are some things I've done at Ferris so far:
