Guardian is a 3D animated short created with Blender and edited with Video Explosion Deluxe. it was created over the course of 5 months by me when I was 18. It is about the Guardian of the land fighting an epic battle against a conqueror of dimensions. I never created an ending.
Thomas Pendergrass--all models, texturing, animations, and lighting. (except for the city gate.) Also I did the voice of the Verde.
Chris Osowlka--The city gate model (thanks man)
Peter Vaughn--He designed the characters, setting, pretty much he's the reason I did this ;) Also, he did the voice of Demonic, Conqueror of Dimensions!
Music--Jamendo.com Humanite, Track 3
This was my first animation created in maya, following my intro to animation college course.
This is a visual representation of what happened to Mat Walsh in my pen and paper role playing game called Marlayo one day. He does a great job of playing the creatures called Dulliks (the things with the long ears). Anyways, he made a pretty drastic move, and survived off of luck. So I had to animate it.
Lulkons are a playable race in my game, Marlayo. They have the ability to mold minerals, and I never tried modelling anything like that before. I gave it a shot and I'm more or less pleased with the result. I'll probably add several steps in the shapekeys next time, instead of one.
Yes. that is a companion cube he just made.
This was the first full fledged animated short I created, back in 2006. It's humbling to compare how much I've learned on the subject since high school.
