Up until now these files were available on LinkedIn, but it is time I migrated them here where they are more easily searchable and might help others doing similar courses.
I know how helpful it was for me to see online how others had tacked the same project briefs.
I spent 2 years at Hornsby TAFE, 2014 and 2015, obtaining Certficate III in Design Fundamentals, Certificate IV in Graphic Design and the Graphic Design Diploma. After each semester I put together a PDF of work from that semester.
Certificate III, Design Fundamentals, 1st Semester 2014
Certificate IV, Graphic Design, 2nd Semester 2014
Diploma, Graphic Design, 1st Semester 2015
Diploma Graphic Design, 2nd Semester 2015
Portfolio end-of-year project from Graphic Design Diploma 2015
There they are, the good, the great, and the ordinary, all together as it happened.
I learned a lot from those 2 years, and I am grateful for them and for all the teachers who helped me along the way.
I should post more of my Cinema4D work. I spend a lot of time experimenting with that software, and watching online tutorials about it.
So here's my Whirly Gig Glider
And some other views of it because a single view didn't do it justice.
With a few special motion effects as well
And further detail
Most recently I took one of my early paintings from a Central Coast Art Society workshop in 2011 with Fran Melrose called 'Tugboat'
And worked on transforming it from 2D to 3D with Cinema4D.
Here's one of the renders:
And now for the S.O.S.
I've been using the student version of Maxon Cinema 4D, and that licence runs out soon after Easter. To get a full licence costs around $4,000 which would be easy if I had paid employment, but that hasn't happened yet. Without the licence I won't be able to continue with this 3D illustration, and I won't be able to access and use the last 3-4 years of work. The closer it gets the more worried I am.
So should you have some small 3D projects that need doing and for which you are happy to pay, please contact me.
